Two groups of panelists examined the global refugee crisis at a World Refugee Day event at New America June 19.
The first panel looked at how refugees resettle in US cities and become integral members of their communities, as well as innovations that are helping to integrate these newcomers. The second panel examined the role of the Syrian diaspora community in assisting those affected by the crisis in their home country. A number of organizations have distributed hundreds of millions of dollars in aid for Syria and its neighbors. For more information and a recording of the event, click here.
