In-person presentations on hold due to COVID-19
The International Institute understands that part of our work is ensuring that the public has accurate information about refugees and immigrants. Staff from every department are trained to deliver a presentation that answers our most frequently asked questions:
- Who are refugees?
- Where are Minnesotan refugees coming from?
- What happens when refugees arrive here?
- How can the community help?
If there is a specific topic that you’re looking to cover with your class, community group, or company, we’d be happy to talk about whether one of our staff members would be a good fit.
Please note that our staff time and resources are limited, so we cannot guarantee our availability to present. The Institute also typically requests a speaker honorarium. In certain cases, the request can be reduced or waived. An in-kind contribution commensurate with your group’s ability to gather needed items to supplement our client services may also be an option.
