Refugees in Canada Topic of Discussion at Forum

In an interdisciplinary collaboration with the Sewanee Women's Center, and thanks to the hard work and organizational skills of Davante Jennings, Kathryn Oliver Mills welcomed an old friend from Oxford University to the Sewanee campus. Janet Dench is the executive director for the Canadian Council on Refugees (CCR).  The CCR is a national non-profit umbrella organization committed to the rights and protection of refugees in Canada and around the world. On Tuesday, April 7, Janet talked with Sewanee students and faculty about her work with the Canadian government and refugees in the particular contexts of domestic and gender based violence, sexual orientation discrimination, and women's issues.   http://ccrweb.ca/en/convocation-address-regis-college
