Welcoming Today’s Refugees

The heartbreaking stories of millions of refugees driven by wars, poverty and persecution to flee their homelands make headlines and fill the airwaves daily.

World leaders will grapple with the global crisis at a summit on refugees on September 20. Before then, you can join Eskinder Negash of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants for a webchat on September 13.

Negash, who is also the former director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, will be joined by humanitarian workers in Greece to talk about how countries can make refugees feel welcome and tap into their skills and talents to spur long-term economic growth.

Watch the Welcoming Today’s Refugees webchat live, right here, at 3 p.m. UTC/11 a.m. EDT on September 13.
