Location: Hutchins Hall 138

Description: Come hear about the amazing work happening in Detroit at Freedom House - a temporary home for survivors of persecution from around the world seeking legal asylum in the United States and Canada. Kelly Steffens AuBuchon, Senior Attorney at Freedom House, will discuss her experience working for this organization and what she does in her role day-to-day. She will be joined by Marie-Lucie Nyobe, former resident and current Case Manager at Freedom House, who will talk about why she left her home country and how Freedom House helped her to obtain asylum once she arrived in the United States.

This event will also be a paper drive! Freedom House has asked students to bring any paper goods to donate to Freedom House (i.e. paper towel, toilet paper, Kleenex) if they are able.

Lunch will be provided.
