Alumni Advocate for Refugees on the Border

Back in 2014, BCSSW alumni Kaitlin Porter and Liz Casey traveled to Italy together as part of a summer course on immigrant integration. Two years later Kaitlin and Liz are still devoted to learning more about how to advocate for refugees as professional social workers at the U.S./Mexico border.
