Upcoming Refugee Integration Conference

Please review and share the below flyer and registration info for “The 2018 Refugee Integration Conference: Overcoming Trauma to Integration”.

From the flyer: It is a two-day event that will bring together individuals of diverse communities. Partnerships in the public, private, nonprofit agencies and service providers will focus on trauma and the healing process. Speakers will showcase best practices from the field, provide state-level information around the economic costs associated with the underutilization of immigrant professionals, and provide information on local and national tools to help this population better integrate into Ohio’s workforce. Community members will walk away with the tools to help New Americans integrate successfully into the United States.

Thank you for supporting the Northland Bazaar1

Hi Partners: Thanks so much to all of you who participated, volunteered,  helped spread the word, shopped and supported the 2nd Northland Community Bazaar in many different ways.

I wanted to share my photos and request if you have any to add them to the album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/b5KoarboEB7PyVtFA

Also, if you put out yard signs (thank you!), would you kindly return the stakes to the Ink Well (1939 E Dublin Granville Rd) so they can reuse them, or let me know where I can pick them up from you.

Finally, it’s been a little while since we have met as a group. Besides the Bazaar, I’ve been working on another project involving community organizations and businesses. We are hoping to build up a business incubator/co-working space that will generate some economic life while bringing the community together supporting the work many organizations are doing here.  If you want to be involved in this and are not already, let me know and I’ll loop you in.

I do want the Northland Partners to meet again and catch up and talk about our aim, probably in November.

Stay in touch!

The Bazaar is only 3 weeks away! Please make sure you are “going” to and sharing the event https://www.facebook.com/events/426715224426044/
