Leah Jaslow of the American Refugee Committee (ARC) will share how ARC is using a human-centered approach to help refugees survive conflict and crisis and rebuild lives of dignity, health, security and self-sufficiency.
At a time when the world is experiencing the worst refugee crisis since WWII, ARC realizes there is much work to be done. In the face of this tragedy, the refugees themselves know best what they need and ARC is listening to them.
Learn about the experiences of a refugee and how ARC is bringing humanity back to the core of humanitarian work. You will hear about the innovative projects they have implemented around the world. From co-creating relief efforts with members of the Somali Diaspora, to creating change with relatively few resources 365 days of the year, ARC chooses to focus on the abundance in our world and the belief that anything is possible.
