Refugees in Virginia

As the political debate over refugees in America heats up during this political season, this series explores the experiences of refugees who are settling, and have settled, in Virginia, and the programs that provide services for them.  The Harrisonburg and Charlottesville areas lead the way in refugee resettlement in Virginia.  Harrisonburg is second only to Northern Virginia in the number of resettled refugees, which numbered 260 in 2013.
