The African Community Center
A refugee resettlement agency


Voices of Refugees
A Community Discussion

Thursday, Nov. 15th 7:00pm
Auraria Campus, North Classroom (Room #1130)

Hear refugees, from two of the world’s most intense “hot-spots,” speak about their experiences in fleeing armed militias, braving hunger and eventually finding safety in the U.S.

Aung Kyaw Toe, a Burmese refugee from Rangoon, arrived in the U.S. just this past August. Toe will speak of the current situation in his homeland and his experiences in fleeing from the military junta after the bloody 1988 protests.

Lado Jurkin, a Sudanese refugee, and one of the “Lost Boys,” arrived in the U.S. in 2001 after living in refugee camps for 15 years. Jurkin will speak about his extraordinary experiences while walking from Southern Sudan to Ethiopia and then to Kenya.

Space is limited, so please RSVP to:
