2019 NEID Giving Circle for Refugees

May 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019 | 6:00 PM to 9:00
Please RSVP to receive location
Though most conflicts today are internal to states, the global refugee crisis transcends national borders to affect all corners of the world. Irrespective of the conflict, refugees face a host of common issues as they seek peace and security, ranging from the trauma of the refugee journey itself to challenging humanitarian conditions in refugee camps, prejudice from host communities, a lack of self-reliance and livelihood, and even problems arising as a result of resettling or returning home. Should refugees successfully overcome these obstacles, they must still cope with the trauma of war for generations to come. This Circle will explore some of these key challenges, examine gaps in funding, and seek to identify ways to improve the lives of refugees.
The Circle will be meeting May 22, June 12th and September TBD.
Speakers:
  • Kel Kelly, Humanity Rises
  • Mike Nickonchuk, The Refugee Brain, The Bearfoot Guide for Psychologists, Beyond Conflict
We will also spend some time beginning to define criteria for our grant invitations and ask members to begin to think of organizations to invite to apply.
Note: Giving Circle Sessions are now closed to Giving Circle Members Only.
Long time NEID members – are asked to give minimum of $1,200 to the Giving Circle and
new NEID members – are asked to become NEID members ($500) and to contribute a minimum of $1,000 toward the Circle.
If you are interested in attending, please email Ina at ibreuer@neidonors.org.
