Presenters will include Abid Rahmani of The Episcopal Diocese Refugee Resettlement Office in Seattle; Irene W. Hassan, Minister of UCC Refugee and Migration Services; Katie Adams of the UCC Washington, D.C., Domestic Policy Advocacy Office, and Noel Andersen of Church World Service Grassroots Coordination.
