Buffalo News reporter Jerry Zremski and photographer Derek Gee will discuss their experiences reporting on the lives of refugees from Burma during “From Burma to Buffalo,” a presentation sponsored by the School of Social Work’s Immigrant and Refugee Research Institute.

Zremski and Gee, who spent 20 months reporting the series of stories detailing the arrival of more than 8,000 Burmese refugees in Buffalo, also will discuss how the Trump administration’s stance on immigration and refugees will affect refugees in the resettlement program.

Their talk will take place from 3:30-5:30 p.m. April 12 in 403 Hayes Hall, South Campus. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
