Welcome, The Roman Catholic Diocese of Sioux City

This week on The Exchange we talk about two initiatives announced in the last week to assist immigrants and refugees in Siouxland. One is from the Catholic Diocese of Sioux City and the other is sponsored by Lutheran Social Services of Iowa. We will hear from representatives of both organizations.

Also, we talk with researcher Silvia Rodriguez Vega of the University of California Santa Barbara, who has spent years working with young children going through trauma because of their families’ immigration status in the United States. The kids put their feelings on paper in the form of artwork and on stage as theater.

Siouxland will say goodbye to Crescent Park Elementary School. The building is being torn down to make way for an apartment complex, after serving as a stand-in for Bryant and Hunt Schools during years of new construction.
