Our Speaker this week is Martin Okpareke, Volunteer & Outreach Manager, Jewish Vocational Services. His topic is "From Oppression to Freedom: A Refugee's Story."
Martin Okareke left Nigeria 25 years ago and entered the United States as a political refugee. Today he assists refugees to the United States. “The term ‘refugee’ means any person who is outside any country of such person’s nationality... and who is unable or unwilling to avail himself or herself of the protection of that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion...” Immigration and Nationality Act § 101(a) (42) [8 U.S.C.1101]
 
Martin Okpareke is the Manager of the Refugee Family Strengthening program and the Out Reach Manager at the Jewish Vocational Service (JVS), Kansas City, Missouri. Originally from Nigeria, he obtained political asylum status in the United States in 1997. He worked for Don Bosco as a refugee job placement specialist for four years and for the past eighteen years has been with JVS changing one life at a time and building strong relationship amongst immigrant communities and the local Kansas City community. He coordinates the quarterly Refugee Immigrant Forum in Kansas City and is actively involved in community organizing; serving on several boards and advisory councils fostering diversity and inclusion. Mr. Okpareke holds a Public Administration degree from Park University.
