Please join us at the UC Theater November 7th at 6p for the 4th in our lecture series created to inform the Missoula community about the countries from which recent refugees have fled.
This lecture will present a fresh look at this fascinating, fraught country, by a recent refugee returning to safety.
Mushtaq Al-Rashidany earned a master's degree in linguistics from UM in 2012, returned to Iraq, married, then sought refuge with his wife and unborn child from war and religious violence.
He will recount their journey and paint a portrait of Iraq—its history, culture, and current situation.
Free and open to the public.
Following the lecture, Soft Landing Missoula and the International Rescue Committee will give brief remarks about current resettlement efforts in Missoula and nationally, along with a 2018 outlook.
