Jan 20, 2020

"Making Buffalo Home: A Refugee's First Year" airs tonight at 9 on WNED-TV. Part of the Making Buffalo Home initiative, the show looks at the challenges refugees face upon relocating to Buffalo. As Senior Producer Lynne Bader points out, nearly 16,000 refugees have called Buffalo home since the early 2000's. In order to make lives here, they needed to overcome two major challenges: finding a job and learning the language.
