US Welcome Corps
Sponsoring Refugees from Overseas to Resettle to the United States
Time & Location
Jun 06, 2023, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
About the Event
The US Welcome Corps invites Americans to form private sponsorship groups and sponsor refugees from overseas to resettle to the US. The effort is the most significant change in our country's resettlement history since the inception of the modern-day US Refugee Admissions Program in 1980.
Join a discussion to learn about the Welcome Corps and what it means for refugees, for those who sponsor them, and for America. The panelists will share opportunities how to get personally involved, and how to support philanthropic efforts to build this new program.
