Building a Welcoming City on a Global Scale
Titilé Keskessa, Camela Echols-Blackmon, Conference Speakers

Each year, our city resettles dozens of refugee families. Unfortunately, far too few people know of this special population. So many of us tend to see the social, political, and economic issues of our city as black and white, but Memphis is rich with diversity. Over 20 different nationalities are represented in Binghampton community alone. Refugee Empowerment Program (REP) is important because it helps give voice to the strangers in our city, eager to be friendly neighbors and productive citizens. We work to build a welcoming community that finds strength in diversity and views education as the key to individual empowerment and community betterment.
