Webinar: Immigrants, Refugees and Local Government Outreach

How are rural communities building relationships with diverse neighbors and embracing differences? The Center for Rural Policy and Development partnered with students from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs to publish a report to help answer these questions.

The video above is from our webinar that took place on Wednesday, July 21st where two students from the research team presented their key findings and discussed the report on immigrants, refugees and local government outreach in rural Minnesota.

Along with our researchers, attendees heard from three panelists:

Oballa Oballa – Austin City Councilman
Sara Karki—Austin Area Minority Business Project
Martha Castanon—Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota

The panelist discussion was moderated by Christina Palladino from Park Street Public.
