Washington, D.C.—Salam Neighbor: Veterans and Refugees Discuss U.S. Involvement in the World Refugee Crisis

Date: 
October 27, 2016 - 7:00pm

Veterans for American Ideals, in partnership with the LBJ Washington Center, will host a screening of the award-winning documentary Salam Neighbor to raise awareness of the millions of men, women, and children forced to flee their homes due to conflict.

Veterans have a particular interest in refugee protection. They have seen firsthand the devastation that conflict brings, and know the plight of those seeking safe harbor and liberty from the oppression of our enemies. Join us for a screening of Salam Neighbor, a sobering view into who these refugees are, and an informal discussion of how American leadership in the global refugee crisis is vital to our interests abroad and imperative to upholding our national values.

We hope you will join us.
