Resettled Refugees in Utica, NY

Resettled Refugees in Utica, NY.  These images celebrate refugee lives and hopes for a prosperous future in Utica, NY. Most of them are from two of the more recent groups, Karen (from Burma) and Bhutanese-Nepalis, because they participated in Starting Over activities more than other groups. There are about as many photographers as there are photos. Submissions from other groups and additional comments about the details in the photos are very welcome!
