This recording is from the first webinar in a series that explores how we can support the refugee family experience in the US. What families and young children experience prior to resettlement in the US is often misunderstood or misrepresented by the media. In this webinar, we heard from Pamoja Early Childhood Workforce Program and early childhood educators who have experienced resettlement. We learned about the assets these families bring to communities and the workforce, as well as what they want systems to know about their experiences.
