- We talk with Abby Gershenzon and Tom Mulhern, two faith leaders who are part of a Eugene alliance of many faiths working to bring several dozen Syrian and Burmese refugees into Oregon in the next few months and as many as 10 families a year until the need is met.
- Continuing our series on Oregon’s Soviet diaspora, we’ll hear from Yelena Benikov, who worked at Vancouver Public Schools as a family liaison from 1993 to 2015. She watched a young generation of Soviet refugee children adjust to American culture, and watched their parents struggle with how to raise children in a new country.
- We check in on some of the latest local business related news, including a new analysis of future ballot measure IP-28, with Scott Nelson, Business Editor at the Oregonian/Oregon Live.
