A Sudanese View In Chattanooga On The Fighting In Sudan
Over the weekend, members of the Sudanese community in Chattanooga gathered on the Walnut Street Bridge.
They showed support for the people of Sudan - among them, family and friends - now displaced and suffering because of the recent outbreak of fighting in the African nation, and as the United Nations warns of a massive refugee crisis in the region the longer the fighting continues.
Hana Karrar Ramirez came to the United States more than five years ago - and she earned a degree here on our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Today, she is a project manager for the Chattanooga Housing Authority - and she stopped by our studio.
