> Immigrants and refugees in Oregon the subject of upcoming “Crucial Conversations” discussion. 
> 
> Global displacement is on the rise, thanks to intractable conflicts, economics, and climate change. Oregonians have and will continue to see the results of international migration in our neighborhoods. 
> 
> Whether through a lack of empathy or, simply, personal experience there tends to be a conceptual or emotional space between those who consider themselves to be “locals” and newly arrived immigrant and refugee groups. As a result, we find ourselves living alone together with no clear way to bridge the gap. 
> 
> How can we as Portland Community College students, faculty, and staff truly connect with and welcome those we might consider to be “other” in order to build more informed, responsive, resilient, and vibrant communities?
> 
> This is the focus of “The Space Between Us: Immigrants, Refugees, and Oregon,” a free interactive discussion with Manuel Padilla on Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 1-2:30 p.m. at the Rock Creek Campus Events Center in Building 9. This program is part of the college’s “Crucial Conversations” series and is sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
> 
> Padilla has done peace work in Haiti, Chad, and Washington, DC, working with internally displaced people, immigrants, and refugees. Currently he implements reconciliation workshops in refugee contexts with the Jesuit Refugee Service, works with youth through restorative justice frameworks, and volunteers with Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Circles of Support and Accountability program.
