Refugee Road: An interactive event exploring the Syrian refugee crisis

November 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

November 28,2017 | 6:30PM – 8:00PM
TripAdvisor Headquarters, 400 1st Avenue, Needham Heights, MA 02494

To date, the violence in Syria has forced more than 11 million people to flee their homes. Even with the extensive coverage of this conflict in the news, it is hard for most of us to fully understand the hardships people affected by this crisis must endure. That is why Oxfam developed Refugee Road, to help others better understand the crisis and how to get involved. As part of the event, Oxfam humanitarian experts will share the latest developments surrounding the crisis, including the impact of the recent U.S. Government decisions and what you can do to help.

Speakers include: 

Ali Al Jundi – Syria Project Officer, Oxfam 

Jeffrey Thielman – President and Chief Executive Officer, International Institute of New England

Noah Gottschalk – Senior Humanitarian Policy Lead, Oxfam

Additional speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. Oxfam’s Refugee Road will be held on Tuesday, November 28 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at TripAdvisor Headquarters, 400 1st Avenue, Needham Heights, MA 02494. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Due to the participatory nature of this event, we recommend arriving before 6:30 p.m. Friends and family are welcome to join and registration is required as space is limited.

TripAdvisor is hosting this event as part of its commitment of $5 million through 2018 from the TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation to aid the global refugee crisis. TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation is currently supporting the International Rescue CommitteeMercy Corps and additional NGOs focused on refugee resettlement and aid.
