Join us for an important and timely conversation with Anne C. Richard, an advocate, humanitarian, and refugee policy expert on the worldwide refugee crisis, and how all global citizens can help. Richard is currently a Centennial Fellow at the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and was formerly the Assistant U.S. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration; an International Rescue Committee leader; and a Fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Why has the global refugee crisis become an omnipresent reality of contemporary news headlines? By definition of international law, refugees are people fleeing conflict or persecution. Currently there are more than 21.3 million refugees in the world according to the UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency. Within the United States and globally, there are multiple organizations who support the effort to relocate displaced refugees, but much more work needs to be done.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to connect with fellow colleagues and engage in dialogue to better understand why addressing the needs of refugees is a vital component of our collective pathways to peace.
