Young Adults and Refugee Resettlement: Welcome to Atlanta

November 10, 2014
Young Adult and Campus Ministries

This evening six young adults gathered around a hearty Italian feast in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood and began to share their stories. From Seattle and Vancouver, Tucson, Cincinnati and New York, we are here to explore the incredible work of Episcopal Migration Ministries in resettling refugees across the US.

Each year the 32 EMM affiliate offices gather for the sake of a community of colleagues, to continue and update their training, and to share their good work. We are privileged to be here accompanying them for these days as a cohort of twenty-somethings. Our goals are multiple: to engage and learn about the good work of EMM; to explore new ways to engage young adults in that work; to discern our own callings to the work of justice in and through our faith; and to connect with other young adults who share our passions and our faith. Over the coming week we invite you to share this journey with us here on our blog as we reflect on the work we see and the stories we hear.
