In honor of World Refugee Day, the Tennessee Foreign Language Institute is hosting a free screening of the powerful film, Salam Neighbor. In the award-winning feature documentary, two American film-makers travel to Za-atari Refugee Camp in Jordan to tell the stories of men, women, and children who have fled the conflict in Syria.
Following the screening, ESL to Go Program Director, Leah Hashinger, will moderate a panel discussion featuring experts in the fields of both local and international refugee resettlement and advocacy work. Panelists include Kellye Branson (Director, Catholic Charities Refugees Services), Zola Ngangu (Case Worker, World Relief), and a representative from the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.
Due to limited parking, we encourage you to carpool/bike/walk/rideshare to the event.
Dolmas and hot tea will be served.
