The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito in Solana Beach hosted a reception and social forum May 21 on the Hmong.

On hand was Bob Montgomery, director of the San Diego branch of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), one of the leading international refugee resettlement agencies active in resettling refugees in San Diego since 1975. The forum focused on displacement of minority people in the world, including the Hmong in Laos and refugees in America today, and some of the themes represented in the May and June art exhibit in the UUFSD Fellowship Hall (1036 Solana Drive, Solana Beach).
