An Exploration of Police-Refugee Relations and Racism Education for Refugees in Dayton
Megan M. Passon
Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley in Dayton, Ohio, resettled 184 refugees in 2018. This number represents a portion of the 3.1 million refugees that have been resettled in the United States since 1980. Drawing on semi-structured, qualitative interviews with members of Ohio law enforcement and former refugees or immigrants employed by Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley, this research explores relationships between law enforcement officers and refugees in Ohio, methods of improving these relationships, and approaches to educating refugees on racism in the United States.
