*Strangers in a strange land: Migrants and disasters in the U.S.
Event Category 

During this webinar, panelists will explore issues connected to migrants and disasters. Why do people leave their original country to come to the U.S.? Is there a need for a climate refugee status for asylum seekers? What happens when migrants arrive in the U.S.? What happens to migrant workers during and after disasters?

At the end of the webinar, grantmakers will:

  • Improve their understanding of the refugee, migrant and asylum seeker pipeline.
  • Increase awareness of funding opportunities in sending and receiving communities.
  • Learn how disasters differentially impact migrant workers.

While primarily aimed at funders, the seminar may also interest emergency managers, government staff, academics, disaster responders, and nongovernmental organization staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
