Opening Session: Racial Justice in Humanitarian Work

Racial Justice Series

Racial Justice in Humanitarian work is a monthly large group learning experience, interspersed with small group reflection sessions applying the learnings to our day to day work. We will study systemic racism in the U.S., histories and lived experiences of people new to the U.S., how each of us fits into those stories individually, and how we can improve our culture of service to refugees and immigrants. Sessions will feature a mix of history, reflection, culture panels,and art & music appreciation.


We seek to Improve refugee & Immigrants' experiences of our services by better understanding complex U.S. and global Histories and adapting our services.
