Feb 19: “Developing Empathy for the Displaced“ with Nancy Dann

10:00 a.m. Sunday, February 19, 2023

Nancy Dann, chair of Nauset Interfaith Association’s Refugee Support Team, will inform us   about the immigrant populations on Cape Cod. From where do they come? What is their legal status within the U.S. immigration system? What challenges do they face? Members of the Refugee Support Team have helped in a variety of ways such as seeking legal advice to obtain asylum status, coordinating with services such as the RMV, and obtaining housing and food. Drawing on this experience, Dann will show us ways that we too can help immigrants in our community thrive.All are welcome.

Live at Chapel in the Pines and on Zoom.
