In 2011, LIRS created the Refugee Alumni Network, a network of former refugees who want to help new refugees in the United States.

A $30 donation is all it takes to get started. As a member, you'll receive the Rebuilding Hope Newsletter to stay connected to LIRS. You’ll also receive opportunities to voice your leadership through advocacy and events. Join today!
