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.

Our information session and first meeting will be Tuesday, September 22nd at 4:30 in Usdan 110. If you have questions, contact Casey Smith at cksmith@wesleyan.edu or Cole Phillips atcdphillips@wesleyan.edu.
