Welcome to the New World

Join us for a special event presented by MOSAIC (Multicultural, Open-Minded, Supportive, Accepting, Inclusive Community). MOSAIC is composed of parents, faculty, staff and board members who work to promote diversity by bringing outside speakers to campus for thought-provoking talks for parents and students.

Tuesday, October 30
7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Location TBD

Jake Halpern and Michael Sloan will discuss their Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times series "Welcome to the New World," about a new refugee family from Syria. They will be joined by Chris George, executive director of IRIS (Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services), and other guests.

Traditional Syrian snacks will be provided by New Haven's Sanctuary Kitchen, a program of CitySeed that promotes the culinary traditions, cultures and stories of refugees resettled in Connecticut.
