​U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) is pleased to host the virtual panel "New Beginnings", where former refugees will have the opportunity to share with us how their personal stories led them to work for other refugees.

The panelists will talk about their resettlement processes as well as their career paths. Please join this discussion to learn more about their experiences and find out how you can help refugees today.
