International Rescue Committee (IRC)

The IRC in Atlanta

The IRC provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom.  Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination.  In Atlanta and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps them rebuild their lives. Photo: the IRC in Atlanta
