This week's Neighbors in Action segment looks at the work done by the Refugee Development Center.

Imagine moving to a new country where you didn’t speak the language, had no friends, and knew little about the culture. For refugees across the world, including right here in Lansing, it’s more than a hypothetical question. It’s their life. For Neighbors in Action this week, we look at the Refugee Development Center, an organization that helps refugees that land in the Lansing area adjust to life in America.

Current State talks with executive director Erika Brown Binion.
