The International Rescue Committee in Charlottesville

The International Rescue Committee provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture, and other immigrants to thrive in America. Since 1998, Charlottesville has welcomed over 4,600 refugees from 32 countries as new members of the community. These individuals have survived against incredible odds. The IRC works with government bodies, civil society actors, and local volunteers to help them translate their past experiences into assets that are valuable to their new communities. In Charlottesville and other offices across the country, the IRC helps them to rebuild their lives.

Please join us for a reception after the presentation. Donations to the IRC will be welcomed at the reception.

The meeting is free and open to the public.
