Repopulation Efforts Require Communitywide Approach
NILES, Ohio – Efforts to repopulate the Mahoning Valley via immigration will require a communitywide approach, an immigration expert said Thursday morning.
Lee Williams, chief program officer for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, participated in a keynote panel discussion on repopulation efforts at the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber’s annual Salute to Business Breakfast.
“There has to be a whole community effort,” Williams said. “The only way that resettlement is successful is if the entire community is engaged.”
