Please see the message from Mr. Eskinder Negash, the Director of Office of Refugee Resettlement regarding World Refugee Day: http://www.mrcaustin.org/pdf/WorldRefugeeDay2010Statement.pdf
MRC had the pleasure of meeting him while he was in town speaking to Central Texas Refugee providers and were very impressed.
MRC will join with other Austin area refugee service providers to honor the refugees that are settled to our community on Saturday- June 26th from 12-3pm at the Bob Bullock State History Museum. The event will kick off with a citizenship ceremony, followed by music and dance from refugee artists. There will be educational activities, a fashion show and fun for all. Come help us celebrate our newest neighbors!
