Sunday, March 26
Alongside Michael Takeo Magruder’s work Lamentation for the Forsaken, a study of the Syrian refugee crisis, which is currently on display at Epiphany as part of the Stations of the Cross exhibition for Station 9 – Jesus Falls for the Third Time, our Coffee and Conversation on March 26 offers a further opportunity to express our solidarity with those who afflicted by this crisis.
In 2015 many French towns agreed to accept refugees from war-torn Afghanistan in response to the request from the French national government. French resident and political activist Kersti Colombant will share in detail her experiences of resettling refugees and the challenges of helping them to become acclimated in to a new social and economic structure.
Colombant originally hails from Australia, but was a long-time D.C. resident who taught French and English as second languages and retired to France a few years ago.
