In mid-July, refugee and refugee supporters gather in Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. It was World Refugee Day, an event hosted by the Utah Refugee Service and the Department of Workforce Services. UPR contributor Ross Chambless was there and collected stories from those who now live in Utah and how the community is rallying around refugees.
The UPR Original Series "Crossing Borders" is a yearlong storytelling project between UPR and the USU Office of Global Engagement - providing services for international students and scholars; and facilitating study abroad opportunities for students and faculty. Details found here.
