IRWP joined a panel hosted by the Global Citizenship Program at Washington University on Muslim refugees and resettlement.

“Sarah Paradoski, IRWP program coordinator, works with refugees who have resettled in the St. Louis area. She named isolation, cultural differences, lack of mental health resources and language barriers as key challenges that local refugees face.

‘People don’t see how refugees can enrich communities,” Paradoski said. “[Refugees] are not just a completely separate group.’”
