PSA from Casey Smith ’17:
Have you been hearing about the global refugee crisis in the news lately and wondering how you can help out? Are you into international relations and community service?
The Wesleyan Refugee Project (WRP) is seeking volunteers for a new initiative supporting the Connecticut refugee community and bringing awareness to the current worldwide refugee crisis.
Members will have the opportunity to volunteer with refugees at Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS), a nonprofit organization in New Haven that resettles refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo, Sudan, and numerous other countries. The Wesleyan Refugee Project will also hold fundraisers and speakers from local and international refugee organizations throughout the year.
If you have questions, contact Casey Smith at cksmith[at]wesleyan[dot]edu or Cole Phillips at cdphillips[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.
