More than 400 refugees will settle in Albany this year, but what happens after they arrive? On this episode of The Eagle, reporter Massarah Mikati shares how the lack of quality affordable housing in the region is burdening local refugee support organizations trying to help people who have fled violence and oppression in their home countries settle down in the U.S. Also on this episode, subpoenaed records show Cuomo accuser Brittany Commisso visited the governor's mansion in on a day she said former Gov. Cuomo groped her. Managing Editor Brendan Lyons explains what that means for the ongoing investigations into Cuomo's alleged sexual misconduct.

Nonprofitnewsfeed.com   Nonprofits On Front Lines of Afghan Resettlement Seek More Foundation & Government Support Nonprofits on the front lines of helping the thousands of Afghan refugees settling in the United States say that they need more financial support to continue to provide services for resettlement. Many of these organizations, accustomed to relatively limited numbers of people who need assistance, have gone into overdrive to help refugees who have been coming to the U.S. over the past several months. However, because these refugees are being admitted primarily through a process called “humanitarian parole,” they receive almost no federal assistance beyond a one-time $1,200 stipend. Organizations carrying out the bulwark of the resettlement work say that in order to provide for so many people who arrived with almost no possessions, they will need additional assistance. Read more ➝ The “Land Back” Movement Brings Reparations To Indigenous Communities To The Forefront The “Land Back” movement, akin to Black lives Matter in its relatively decentralized usage, is a call for recognizing that Indigenous land has been stolen through genocide and calls for reparations to Native Americans, largely in the form of the returning of land and disassembly of colonizing structures. In this article for Nonprofit Quarterly, the authors lay out a framework for providing adequate reparations to Indigenous communities who still face the repercussions of colonization. The article also calls for the philanthropic sector to work in partnership with communities to work to repair the damage done throughout history.

As of mid-2020, more than 20 million refugees were displaced to another country and under the mandate of UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. While some may eventually return to their countries of origin or integrate locally into their host community, for the most at risk, resettlement remains a critical tool to secure legal status and access to fundamental rights in a third country. However, the number of resettlement places made available remains far below the level needed and plunged during the COVID-19 pandemic. This global scarcity in resettlement places has been paralleled by innovation. States have shown creativity in designing resettlement programs and in growing access to protection via complementary pathways, including educational and employment ones. The Three-Year Strategy (2019–2021) on Resettlement and Complementary Pathways, launched following the adoption of the Global Compact on Refugees in 2018, aims to achieve more resettlement opportunities for refugees, as well as better access for refugees to complementary pathways. To support the goals of the Three-Year Strategy, the Sustainable Resettlement and Complementary Pathways Initiative (CRISP), led by UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), provides support to states and key stakeholders to establish, expand, or renew resettlement programs and advance complementary pathways of admission. This Migration Policy Institute Europe webinar marked the launch of a report that sets out a series of recommendations for how UNHCR, national governments, civil society, and other partners can most effectively support the growth of resettlement and complementary pathways in the years ahead. The webinar highlighted the recommendations developed by MPI Europe in collaboration with the University of Ottawa Refugee Hub showcased in the report, which was commissioned by UNHCR with CRISP support.

The Home Office has announced that Afghans who worked for the British military and UK government will be able to move to the UK permanently. Those who arrived previously had had their temporary residency capped at five years, but they too will now be granted indefinite leave to remain. The Taliban leadership have said on their first day with international forces gone from Afghanistan that they want good relations with everyone, while also warning that there should be no interference in their affairs. Today's Mishal Husain speaks to Victoria Atkins, the Home Office minister in charge of Afghan resettlement as well as Nusrat Ghani, Conservative MP who is among those trying to help Afghans who still want to leave.

Two women have filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court that argues a vaccine mandate for certain health care workers and for attendance at the New Mexico State Fair violates their constitutional rights. The lawsuit seeks to bar the mandate's enforcement. Meanwhile, the state's Youth Livestock Board has moved its annual competition to Roswell in an effort to sidestep the vaccine mandate, which impacted children in FFA and 4-H programs who are too young to receive an approved vaccine.

Others reluctantly choose migration when their ability to support basic necessities for their family members is extremely difficult and they perceive that other countries, more robust economies, offer better opportunities to achieve their goals. Still others are forced to migrate due to war, internal conflict, political or religious persecution, or natural disasters that threaten the health and safety of family members. Regardless of the impetus, families are on the move globally, a trend that will continue in the foreseeable future.

How does being othered in America impact our awareness of difference, and how does that lens affect our lived experience? In this episode of Lyric World, host Shin Yu Pai talks with poet Brian Komei Dempster, whose work explores this othered space both through a national and personal history of anti-Asian bigotry, and his own experiences as a parent of a disabled child. They reflect on Dempster’s work exploring histories of Japanese internment and the lasting legacy on subsequent generations, a topic that is close to him as his maternal grandfather, a Buddhist priest, was held in various internment camps while the rest of the family was imprisoned in the concentration camp Topaz. While also considering his parenting experiences, they discuss what it means to engage with the trauma of public history, and to turn towards that grief and suffering as a commitment to reality, and the times within which we live. Tune in for this vital and deeply personal conversation. Brian Komei Dempster’s debut book of poems, Topaz, received the 15 Bytes 2014 Book Award in Poetry. His second poetry collection, Seize was published in 2020. Dempster is editor of From Our Side of the Fence: Growing Up in America’s Concentration Camps and Making Home from War: Stories of Japanese American Exile and Resettlement. He is a professor of rhetoric and language at the University of San Francisco, where he serves as Director of Administration for the Master of Arts in Asia Pacific Studies program. Shin Yu Pai is the author of ten books of poetry. Her work has appeared in publications throughout the U.S., Japan, China, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Her essays and nonfiction writing have appeared in Tricycle, YES! Magazine, The Rumpus, City Arts, The Stranger, Medium, and others.

Three decades later, the family still hasn't been allowed to build a permanent home together anywhere.

This week’s guest is Yasmine Sherif, Director of Education Cannot Wait, which delivers education in humanitarian crises through funding investments for UN agencies and civil society organizations. Yasmine describes herself as a pragmatic idealist, who was taught by her mother not to look for success in life, but to seek to serve. Before her current role Yasmine worked for UNHCR resettling refugees. She says that her mission now is crucial to helping people overcome crises and rebuild their lives: “If you invest in the children, give them the tools, the education, so that they are no longer disempowered, that if you and I cannot change the world, they can do it. So that's why education is so important. And I would say, especially for children and adolescents, who are refugees internally displaced in crisis countries... they are strong but just need to give them the tools, don't leave them behind. And education is that vehicle to become powerful leaders for the future.”
