International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Advocating Change

The International Rescue Committee seeks to bring attention to forgotten or neglected crises and to pressure governments and international organizations to take action to help and protect refugees, displaced people and other victims of conflict. 

IRC advocacy is fueled by an understanding of situations on the ground and in the field that comes from working on a daily basis with people affected by war and violence.  It is rooted in a tradition of speaking out on behalf of the oppressed and forgotten that dates back to 1933.  YOU can help by taking action.
