Wednesday, November 8, 2017: Former refugees elected to public office!

Elections across the country on Tuesday, November 8 brought victories for many first-time public office holders. In Montana and Virginia, it was also an historic election night for two candidates who came to the United States as refugees. Their winning campaigns represent the immense contributions of refugees who are welcomed to this country after fleeing violence and persecution.
