Feedback form is now closed.
Utah is one of the many refugee sponsoring states in the United States of America, resettling about 1500 refugees annually. How do refugees arrive, and what sponsoring agencies bring them to Utah? What challenges do new refugees face after arrival? What are the opportunities, funding and resources available for them in Utah? How should libraries collaborate with non-profit and government agencies to help these refugees to overcome such challenges?
