Tour Teaches Students, Faculty about City’s Refugee Population
More than 30 Syracuse University students and faculty, along with members of the greater Syracuse community, took part in a walking tour of Syracuse’s North Side on April 22 to learn more about the city’s refugee population.
The event, hosted by the Syracuse University Program for Refugee Assistance (SUPRA), gave participants an opportunity to better understand the city’s newest members and find out about the agencies that serve them. Participants met with representatives from the Northside Learning Center, InterFaith Works, Hopeprint, Catholic Charities and PenPal.
SUPRA is a volunteer organization that brings together graduate students from across the University to help serve the local refugee population.
The walking tour culminated with an authentic Vietnamese meal at the refugee-owned Mai Lan restaurant on North State Street.
