“Refugees and Immigrants: Who We Are and How We Got Here.”

In 2019 The Gathering will consider “Refugees and Immigrants: Who We Are and How We Got Here.” We will discuss why many Americans, most of whom are descended from immigrants or refugees, favor closing the door on them now. We will look at statistics that tell the truth about immigrants’ cultural and economic contributions to the United States, immigrants and crime rates, and whether Americans have a special responsibility to take in people whose lives have been threatened in their homelands. Speakers include Gail Carson Levine, an award-winning children’s author and poet, who will talk about the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492; Ilya Kaminsky, an award-winning poet and immigrant from Russia; Tyler Marshall, an international correspondent for the Los Angeles Times who has reported from Eastern Europe, Afghanistan, and other areas affected by wars that created massive refugee movement; Yaa Gyasi, the Ghanaian-born author of the novel Homegoing; and others who have been refugees or immigrants, or who work on their behalf.
