The Winnebago County Literacy Council (WCLC)

Winnebago County Literacy council strengthens our community by developing and providing effective literacy programs and services. We are currently seeking additional volunteers to help those seeking literacy in Winnebago County.

Refugee Simulation Workshop

We are proud to announce our upcoming REFUGEE SIMULATION workshop, in collaboration with Dr. Fonkem Achankeng, a professor in the Human Services Leadership program at UW Oshkosh. He has a wealth of experience in this field; not least among his associations, he is connected to the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies and a contributor to the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and Safeworld. Please join us!

At the Refugee Simulation workshop, attendees will learn about refugees, how they come to the U.S., the choices they make, and the struggles they endure to reach our shores. During the workshop, each participant will take on the identity of a particular migrant, and leave with a better understanding of what our refugees have gone through.

When: Saturday, September 22 from 2:30 PM-4:30 PM

Where: Oshkosh Public Library - Lower Level-Children’s Area-Room A/B)

Please contact Dana Koch, koch@winlit.org or 920-379-2611 if you want to sign up for this rare and enlightening workshop.
