Refugee 101 with the IRC
April 4th, 2023 6:30PM -7:30PM
Join us for a thought-provoking seminar on the current global refugee crisis and the role of the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Sharon Tsoi, an employee at the Seattle branch of the IRC, will discuss the challenges faced by refugees, the impact of displacement on individuals and communities, and the efforts of the IRC to provide assistance and support to those in need. The seminar will also delve into the political and economic factors that contribute to forced migration, and explore potential solutions for addressing the crisis. Don't miss this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of one of the most pressing humanitarian issues of our time.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a humanitarian and refugee-led organization that works to provide assistance and support to people affected by displacement worldwide. The organization was founded in 1933 to help refugees fleeing Nazi persecution and has since grown to provide a wide range of services to those in need, including emergency aid, health care, education, and economic assistance. The IRC also works to advocate for the rights and needs of refugees and to promote long-term solutions to displacement, such as resettlement and integration. The organization operates in over 40 countries around the world.
Thanks to the International Rescue Committee for their partnership on this program.
