Helping Refugees Today: What We Need to Know, What We Need to Dounnamed

Executive orders and federal court orders are changing the landscape for refugees who seek safety and freedom in the U.S. Join us at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in San Francisco for a briefing from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and leading refugee resettlement agencies in the Bay Area.

Nina Sachdev, USCIS, will explain refugee processing procedures, including vetting, an overview of the asylum program and how USCIS responds to changing situations. Karen Ferguson, International Rescue Committee, and Kathryn Winogura, Jewish Family & Community Services-East Bay, will share how their agencies are responding and how we can help.

Sponsored by Interfaith Welcome: Bay Area Refugee Support, with member congregations Calvary Presbyterian Church, Congregation Emanu-El, Grace Cathedral, Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, Old First Presbyterian Church and St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.

Attendees may sign up to volunteer or make a donation to the International Rescue Committee and Jewish Family & Community Services-East Bay.
