Join the Peace Corps Community for Refugees and show your support for refugees and immigrants in the Washington, D.C. area at "Standing Together: A Dialogue on Refugees & Immigration with the 2018 USA Teacher of the Year".
Following an informal reception, we will hold a one-hour forum in the auditorium of New York University's D.C. building at 1307 L Street NW to encourage local citizens to show support through volunteer activities. For those who cannot attend in person, the forum will also be streamed (check back here for link).
Our keynote speaker will be Mandy Manning, 2018 National Teacher of the Year, who has become one of the nation's leading advocates in support of immigrant and refugee students in our public schools. Refugee and immigrant residents will share their stories, and leaders from agencies that support refugees will discuss successful ways all of us can mobilize local support for refugees and immigrants.
