Free Film Screening of Salam Neighbor, April 26th at UCCS

Join Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains, Center for Religious Diversity and Public Life, and GLINT for a chance to witness the experiences of refugees with a viewing of the award winning film, Salam Neighbor. Watch as filmmakers Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple immerse themselves in the day to day life of a refugee camp, where they lived among more than 80,000 Syrian refugees.

Following the film, Laura Liibbe (LFS) will speak on the programs in Colorado Springs designed to help refugees find a new home in the United States. Additionally, refugees will share their own personal stories of struggles and triumphs as they make their way from camp to Colorado and beyond.

Come be part of the discussion as we join together to create a supportive and compassionate community for those seeking refuge. The conversation begins at Centennial Hall at UCCS from 6:15-9:00 p.m. on April 26th. Parking is free from 5:30-9:45 p.m. in Lot 224.
