Support the IRC this #GiveMiamiDay, Nov. 21

Last updated 

Please save the date to support the IRC in Miami for this year’s Give Miami Day – November 21, 2019 – and join the movement to raise funds and awareness for nonprofits in our community!

The IRC in Miami is committed to raising $5,000 in just 24 hours to ensure survivors of human trafficking and unaccompanied children in Miami-Dade County continue to have access to our vital, life-changing programs and assistance, and we need your help to reach this goal!

Become an IRC Champion and start your own #GiveMiamiDay fundraiser, visit our Give Miami Day profile to get started and #StandWithSurvivors today!

The IRC opened its locally-funded office in Miami in 1960 in response to the Cuban Revolution and, over the decades, has served tens of thousands of refugees, asylees, Cuban entrants, survivors of trafficking and other vulnerable populations in South Florida. Although the IRC in Miami's refugee resettlement program concluded in 2018, the office continues to serve the community by providing holistic, trauma-informed services to survivors of human trafficking as well as unaccompanied children and their families; conducting public outreach and education to raise awareness of human trafficking; and co-leading the Federal South Florida Human Trafficking Task Force in partnership with local and federal government law enforcement agencies.

Together with generous donors – like yourself – as well as businesses, schools, faith communities and civic organizations, the IRC in Miami works to ensure vulnerable populations can integrate and thrive in South Florida communities.

Please mark your calendars for this important day of philanthropy, like us on Facebook, and share our Give Miami Day profile with your networks.

Thank you in advance for your support!
