Arriving: Refugee Stories from Around the World
Location: Virtual

Refugee Stories


In honor of World Refugee Day, join us for an evening of story-sharing with four people who came to the United States as refugees. Learn about the diversity in their experiences along with shared struggles and triumphs as they settled into new lives in a foreign place. Hear stories from the Middle East, the former Soviet Union, Central America, and the African continent and have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with each speaker.


Finally, representatives from HIAS and the EDCJCC will share an update on the current status of the United States Refugee Admissions Program, how you can help newly arrived refugees, and how you can help those still hoping to come.


In partnership with HIAS and KAMA DC.
