About The Event

Kevin's experience as an American refugee on 9/11 opened his eyes to the global migrant and refugee crisis. He began volunteering with his church to do accompaniment visits at Elizabeth Detention Center. When his first friend Samuel A. was granted asylum and released, he brought him to Seafarers International House for free, temporary shelter.

Samuel and his family, recently arrived in the US, will join the discussion. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author for $16.15 with credit card. Refreshments will be served.
