Resettling in America: Georgia’s Refugee Communities

What: Resettling in America: Georgia’s Refugee Communities explores the challenges of resettlement and the resiliency of refugees living in metropolitan Atlanta as they build new lives, identities, and a sense of community.

The exhibition also highlights the dedicated work of ethnic community-based organizations (ECBOs) and local non-profit service organizations that work with refugee clients to help them integrate into society.
