Panel Discussion About Refugee And Immigrant Communities
Residents of Albany are being invited to meet their refugee and immigrant neighbors at a panel discussion Thursday.
Organizers say panelists will discuss the plight of displaced people new to the country and ways residents can help them become part of the local community.
The panel comes at a time when many municipalities and their local police forces are grappling with their role in the federal debate over “sanctuary cities.”
Mayor Kathy Sheehan’s office says the panel gets under way at 5:30 in the rotunda at Albany City Hall.
