2018 Fireside Forum: Starting a New Life without Starting Over

January 25, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Being a refugee often means having your life reduced to a case file. Somali-born former refugee Hamse Warfa is using Blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin, to create a way for refugees to bring their past lives with them as they integrate into their new situation.

He’ll be joined by Dawn Tower, an MPS educator whose classroom at Washington High School of Information Technology includes many students from recently arrived refugee families.

The 2018 Fireside Forum is organized by the UWM Institute of World Affairs.
