About The Film
“Utica: The Last Refuge tells the story of how a struggling rustbelt city has rebounded via the major contribution of its refugee population. Given that there are 25 million refugees globally, fewer than 1% of whom are likely to be resettled by current standards, there is a lot to be learned from Utica’s example.
We know that resettling refugees is one way we can fulfill our humanitarian obligations. If it can be shown that doing so benefits the communities in which they land, which is well supported by data, ramping the program up makes great sense.”
