Syrian Refugees Documentary Screened Through MJC Project
Modesto Jr College

The Modesto Junior College Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites the community to a screening of the documentary ‘Beginning Again: Syrian Refugees Settle in Modesto’ on Thursday, March 2 at 7 p.m. in Forum 110 on East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto. The free event is part of the CEP Spring Film and Lecture Series. Campus parking is available for $2 in student parking lots.

ABC World News with David Muir follows a Syrian refugee family on their journey from Syria to Jordan, and finally to Modesto. See the episode, meet the family, hear from those involved in their resettlement, and join a discussion on a response to refugees in the community.

Attendance at CEP events is limited so arriving early is encouraged. Additional seating is available in Forum 101, with video streaming from Forum 110, to accommodate a larger audience for this event.
