In light of current debates about whether Kansas and Missouri should participate in the resettlement of Syrian refugees, we rebroadcast a recent conversation exploring Kansas City's role in the pipeline of refugees coming to the United States. Not just from Syria, but from around the world.

Guests:

  • Hilary Singer, executive director, Jewish Vocational Services
  • Valerie Sprout, attorney, McCrummen Immigration Law Group
  • Sarah Pitia, KC resident, refugee from Sudan
  • Dawt Peng, KC resident, member of the Chin community from Burma (now called Myanmar)
