A few minutes ago reader Joanne sent this announcement of an upcoming meeting of Students for Refugees at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville:
Canopy NWA is a relatively new subcontractor (as noted by Mr. Komar above) of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), their ‘mothership’ headquartered in Baltimore, MD. We told you about Canopy here last October.
We told you here this October, on October 24th, that LIRS has signed a contract with JBS Swift the foreign-owned globalist meatpacking giant whose North American headquarters are in Greeley, CO to find, and help them retain, cheap and compliant refugee labor for its plants in four states.
But that isn’t the only arrangement that LIRS has made with globalist corporations—they have an agreement with Tyson Foods whose headquarters are in guess where? Arkansas! (Original home of Bill and Hill and cattle futures—remember that!)
We were able to obtain this confirmation, that yes, LIRS, has a deal with Tyson Foods for a $50,000 pilot project to teach “financial literacy” to refugees, whatever the heck that means!

Subject: Tyson Foods–good news!
This evening we received some good news from Tyson Foods regarding our proposal for a pilot financial literacy project in northwest Arkansas/Missouri. Our proposal was accepted and we will be moving forward with Tyson. This is incredible news for LIRS because the clear goal of Tyson Foods is to provide financial literacy in all of their plants and to all of their team members (over 10,000) nationwide.
To quote Tyson:
“We are pleased to announce that your organization has been selected as our financial literacy award recipient. We want to formally congratulate your team on an exceptional proposal. In particular, we were impressed with the cultural and gender sensitivities it included, the overall structure of your pilot, and the local partnership networks you were able to identify. We were also encouraged to learn about your organizational experience working with one of our major competitors – JBS. We hope this will give LIRS insight into our specific industry and will help you maximize programmatic traction early on.”
Our proposal would not have been possible without Kirsten’s singular efforts, and finance’s inputs. Also, Canopy of NWA, LFS-RM, and LSS-MN played roles.

Note that Canopy of NWA helped make this possible along with Lutheran Family Service-Rocky Mountains, and our old pals in Minnesota—-Lutheran Social Service-MN!
LOL! I can’t help but wonder if this isn’t a small price to pay for Tyson Foods to have an inside track with a resettlement contractor who might then alert them to fresh batches of refugees (aka laborers) entering the US.
By the way, I did try to reach Ms. Zelic by e-mail, but never got a response perhaps because we hear the Baltimore office is going through some tough times?
So, would someone please tell those well-intentioned students that they are shilling for the globalists—-BIG MEAT! (and BIG CHICKEN!).
Do none of the privileged students at the University of Arkansas have friends back home who would love to work in a meat plant for good wages—the kind of wages meatpackers did pay before they discovered immigrant labor?
