What

Resettling in America: Georgia’s Refugee Communities explores the challenges of resettlement and the resiliency of refugees living in metropolitan Atlanta as they build new lives, identities, and a sense of community. Through documentary photography, personal testimonies, and artwork, it particularly focuses on Clarkston, a small suburb of Atlanta with the highest refugee resettlement rates in the area that is considered one of the most diverse cities in America.

The exhibition also highlights the dedicated work of ethnic community-based organizations (ECBOs) and local non-profit service organizations that work with refugee clients to help them integrate into society.
