When: March 7, 2010, 5-7 p.m.
Where: The David Brower Center, 2150 Allston Ave, Berkeley
The IRC will be participating in an event raising awareness for the issues facing newly arrived refugees in the Bay Area. Hosted by Mosaic, “Among Us” will be an in-depth look at the barriers refugees face in their first few months in America, and the services that the IRC provides to help families overcome them. In addition to representatives from the IRC, the evening will feature a refugee speaker who has been resettled by the IRC, and who will share his own experience as a refugee in the United States.
