Tenement Talks

Refugee Entrepreneurship: Work and Community


When: Thursday, June 20, 2019, 6:30 pm (Doors open at 6:00 pm)

Event Location: 103 Orchard Street

Cost: FREE

This World Refugee Day, we host a conversation with entrepreneurs and those creating programs and policies to support their work. Communities around the globe are recognizing mutual benefit in supporting the skills and entrepreneurial spirit brought by new arrivals. For refugees who have fled their homes due to war and persecution, starting a business and using their skills can help them find a place in their new communities, as well as earn a living. This program is co-sponsored by the International Rescue Committee and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Members at the Contributor level and above are able to reserve seats.
