"Welcoming Refugees: A Community Conversation"

The Norman Miller Center is hosting a conversation about refugee integration in communities. Honored guests include representatives from Sweden and a co-founder of COMSA, a local Somali resource organization, joining us. 

The evening will begin at 6 pm in the Mulva presentation room and will feature a brief presentation first from our Swedish guests who will talk about how the city of Åmål, Sweden has successful integrated refugees. Next, we will hear from a local representative from the Somali community regarding Brown County's integration efforts and resources that are still needed. Then the floor will be open to discussing what our community can do to learn from our Swedish partners and create a more inclusive and welcoming environment. 

The night is intended to be both informative and educational and will feature photographs and stories of individual refugees from both Sweden and the United States. All are welcome!

ARTgarage, Green Bay
Art for Human Rights

The ARTgarage and The Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice and Public Understanding at St. Norbert College are organizing an art exhibit to celebrate organizations in our community working towards the fulfillment of human rights. This event is also intended to honor the history of human rights as the milestone document; as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed on December 10, 1948. This event will include a look at contemporary human rights issues facing our world today and concentrate on the magnificent work being done in our own backyard. As Eleanor Roosevelt so famously stated, “Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home...".

This event plans to highlight local artists and local organizations that are working in the field of social justice and human rights while using art as a tool for civic engagement. This is both an awareness raising event as well as a day of celebrating the incredible work being done to advance the rights of all people in our own community.
