ABOUT INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE AND WHY WE ARE DOING THIS

After the Presidential determination to only admit 30,000 refugees for Fiscal Year 2019, we decided it was time to bring the focus back to the people we work with and who we see ourselves in. We want to highlight the fact that refugees add to the communities they become a part of. We want to show off the talent that is present, waiting to be found and nurtured. We believe this is how you grow a community, by “coming together” to give people the support and resources they need to thrive- especially in a time of need.
