Join Global Refuge for a virtual Townhall session to discuss the impact this public health crisis is having on our communities, including the immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers who are so vital to them. In this interactive gathering, we will cover:

  • State of Affairs for Migrants and Refugees
  • What We’re Doing to Help
  • How You Can Get Involved
