While the full scope of COVID-19’s impact is still unfolding, we know that it exacerbates an already dire situation for forcibly displaced people around the world. Millions of refugees are trapped in highly vulnerable situations—enduring intense poverty, unstable and overcrowded housing, lack of access to medical treatment, persecution and violence.
Together with our partners, we are working to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of refugees in the United States, at our borders and around the world.
Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, May 6 at 5pm ET, 2pm PT to learn about how COVID-19 is impacting forcibly displaced people, how Refugee Action Fund is responding and how you can help.
We are delighted to be joined by staff from two partner organizations who will share stories and reflections from the front lines of the U.S-Mexico border and in refugee communities around the world:
|Adela Mason is the Director of the American Bar Association's Immigration Justice Project, providing high quality pro bono legal services to individuals in detention and appearing before the San Diego immigration court.|
Rachel Levitan is the Vice President for International Programs at HIAS, working around the world to protect refugees who have been forced to flee their homelands because of who they are, including ethnic, religious, and sexual minorities.
