DP: Colorado ranked among the highest in the country in employment measures for refugees, immigrants

The Post’s Saja Hindi continues: “Twenty percent of arriving refugees have a bachelor’s degree or higher,’ Taintor said, ‘and many have specialized skills … officials want to make sure they’re able to help them enter their career fields and add to Colorado’s workforce in a meaningful way.

That’s where programs like Emily Griffith’s come in.

The college has served 220 refugees and immigrants in its CAREERS program … with the majority from Burma, Iraq, Afghanistan, Bhutan and Congo, said Tiffany Jaramillo, manager and career navigator for the college’s Refugee and Immigrant Integration program.

That’s dope. That’s what an ally does.

Let’s be allies to everyone.
