Finding Asylum in California

Date and Time
Wednesday, March 23, 2022 7:00 PM (PT)

California aims to be a safe place to land for refugees and asylum seekers, but what does relocation really look like?

Host of KQED Newsroom Priya David Clemens invites KQED's Immigration Senior Editor Tyche Hendricks, visual artist Caleb Duarte, and refugee resettlement director Fouzia Azizi to share their observations and experiences of dislocation, migration and the quest to make California home.  Caleb will show images and footage of his sculptural performances, made in collaboration with displaced people from Mexico and Central America. And Fouzia will speak about the legal and logistical challenges of resettling new arrivals and her personal experience as a refugee from Afghanistan.
