If you were at the 2017 JFN International Conference, then you heard Becca Heller, co-founder and director of The International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), speak about the ongoing refugee crisis. Learn more about her work, and to learn about the organization's life-saving legal assistance to refugees through an innovative model that mobilizes direct legal aid and systemic policy advocacy to benefit and empower the world's most persecuted individuals.
Becca Heller will discuss how IRAP is working to address some of the most urgent needs of refugees and how funders can support efforts to respond to this crisis. IRAP's Middle East Director, Kathleen Norland List, will talk about conditions on the ground for refugees and how IRAP's field teams in Lebanon and Jordan work to proactively identify and reach out to particularly vulnerable refugees to provide assistance. Finally, a former IRAP client who is now safely resettled will join the webinar to share his story as a refugee who fled war and persecution in search of a safe, new beginning.
This webinar is for JFN members only.
