This documentary and discussion tackles the issues of belonging and citizenship.

“Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire” is a 30 minute documentary following the story of five refugees who were resettled in NH. Produced by the Center for the Humanities at the University of New Hampshire, the film explores what it means to be a refugee and how it feels to make a new life in a strange place. A Q&A session immediately follows the film.

Guest speaker Suraj Budathoki, recipient of the Union Leader’s 40 Under 40 Award, shares his experiences as a Bhutanese refugee who now make his home in this state. He was joined by Eva Castillo, 2017 MLK Award winner and executive director of NH Alliance for Immigrants and Refugees.
