Have you ever imagined what it would be like to flee your country and arrive in a new one where you didn't understand its language, codes, norms or values? This is the reality for millions of refugees around the world, including Seattle. Are you interested in learning more about this situation and helping some of the most vulnerable in our community? If so, sign up for this class! This is a great opportunity to learn about refugee issues, raise awareness and explore writing as well.
