Idaho State University’s Department of Sociology, Social Work and Criminology will be presenting "Immigration, Refugees and their Varied Impacts on Idaho," with speakers Laurence P. Gebhardt, Osciel Salazar, and Georgia Milan, on Nov. 12
Gebhardt is the president of BRIDGES Idaho refugee support organization. Since 2016, BRIDGES has helped provide for the immediate needs, family support, connections for education, and jobs to refugees mostly via the Twin Falls CSI Resettlement Center. BRIDGES is revitalizing support activities as the Biden Administration admits more refugees including expected Afghanis.
Salazar is the associate director of the CAMP program at Idaho State. The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is a federally funded program that provides financial assistance, support services, and cultural enrichment opportunities to students from migrant and seasonal farm worker backgrounds during their first year at the university.
Milan is the clinical director for the Pocatello Free Clinic. She has been an advocate and has worked to provide clinical services to migrant workers in Southeast Idaho, and around the world.
All are invited to register and attend.
