MRC was invited to participate in the First Night Austin New Years Eve Celebration (www.firstnightaustin.org) in partnership with students from Bowie High School Art Club. Under the leadership of art teacher Amber Bohanna the students created monuments and country flags from each country that we have refugees from here in Austin in addition to MRC signs. At least 50 people came out to support us- students, refugees and supporters of MRC. A great time was had by all! Happy New Year!!
