Most people would prefer to stay in their home countries instead of undertaking uncertain and often perilous journeys. However, by the end of last year, conflict, violence, persecution, natural disasters, and the impacts of climate change had forcibly displaced nearly 110 million people.
People from all over the world have sought refuge in the United States since before its inception, and the U.S. government recently opened new pathways for refugees to enter the country through community sponsorship and private sponsorship.
Join GCIR in a dialogue with leaders who operate in both the traditional refugee resettlement space and who can share perspectives on the new community sponsorship program. Learn how philanthropy can better mobilize resources to protect those seeking safety and refuge in the United States.
- Basma Alawee, Deputy Executive Director, Community Sponsorship Hub
