UPCOMING EVENTS


REFUGEE VOICES - A SYMPOSIUM
Monday, July 2,  7:00pm

Community Hall
Albany Unitarian Universalist
405 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY

Building on themes explored in this summer's production of The Consul, Opera Saratoga presents a special symposium on the contemporary immigrant and refugee experience. This event will bring together a group of people from different countries who have made their homes in the Capital Region to share their journeys, including Rifat Filkins (Pakistan) , Francis Sengabo (Rwanda), Muthana Alkhazraji (Iraq), Ali Amjadi (Sudan), and Lily Htoo (Mammary, via Thailand). The discussion will shed light on the difference between the experience of immigrants versus those who are specifically refugees, and Albany’s role as a Sanctuary City. Presented in partnership with RISSE (Refugee and Immigrant Support Services of Emmaus), the forum will be moderated by Seth Leech, a partner with Whiteman Osterman & Hanna, whose primary practice area is immigration law including family-based immigration and asylum. 

 

FREE PARKING is available at the Hawley Parking Lot, located at the corner of Washington Ave and Robin St.
