Understanding East African Immigrant Culture (Feb. 12th, 2009)
The MN Institute of Public Health is sponsoring a forum regarding East African Immigrant Culture.
In Minnesota, 13% of its foreign-born residents in the 2000 Census were from Africaa higher percentage than any other state in the country. Of these individuals that now reside in Minnesota, Somalis constitute the largest number; it is generally estimated that between 10,000 and 15,000 live in the state, but some estimates reach as high as 50,000. Managers, employees, educators, social service providers, and people at all levels should attend this forum to enhance cultural understanding of the East African population that is entering into MN’s communities and workforce.
