BENEFITING: IRIS-Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services
EVENT: 2017 Run for Refugees
EVENT DATE: Feb 05, 2017
Action Together CT is a coalition of engaged and motivated individuals in 6 CT counties that have committed to using the Indivisible Guide (www.indivisibleguide.com), an instructional guide from former congressional staffers, as a platform for organizing a progressive agenda in local, state and national politics.
We are a part of the Action Together Network (www.actiontogethernetwork.org), a network of former groups that will provide support for our group and link us to other state groups nationally.
We believe that immigrants and refugees deserve the privilege of living in the United States of America and receiving basic human rights and respect. We believe that every person has equal value and that the global family is strengthened when all of humanity is recognized.
The USA invites 85,000 refugees to our country through a rigorous screening process by the Department of Homeland Security. IRIS helps refugees on the road to self-sufficiency by providing lifesaving support during their transition to life in the United States in CT. Help us support IRIS through our action and fundraising.
