Ohio Refugee Advisory Council
 

The Ohio Refugee Advisory Council (ORAC), created in 1981, serves at the invitation of the Director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services to advise the Department on matters relating to refugee resettlement.  ORAC meets in Columbus quarterly and on an ad-hoc basis.  Meetings usually consist of a discussion of current Ohio refugee issues and one or more  informative/ educational presentations.  Visitors are welcome, and will be given the opportunity to present their views on refugee-related issues during the public comment period set aside for that purpose.  If you would like to attend a meeting, please email the ODJFS Refugee Services Section at refugee@jfs.ohio.gov.  Upcoming ORAC meetings are scheduled as follows: 

  • March 7, 2017, 1:00 p.m.

  • September 12, 2017, 1:00 p.m.
