Join the Michigan Refugee Assistance Program (MRAP) as they host their capstone event on March 16, 2017 from 7:30-10:00 p.m. at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. At this event, the audience will have the opportunity to hear from former refugees who will be sharing their moving stories about resettling in the United States. The event will also host photographer Jim Lommasson, who will speak about his current project What We Carried, which depicts stories of displacement, loss, and the preservation of identity through objects brought from displaced Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Professionals in the refugee sector will then provide insight into the largest humanitarian crisis of our generation and how we can take action. This event will be followed by a reception with Jim Lommasson and members of the refugee community.

Organized by the Michigan Refugee Assistance Program, with support from the U-M LSA Student Government, Language Resource Center, International Institute, Multi-Ethnic Student Association, and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
