BPB’s First “Virtual” Quarterly Luncheon Meeting
May 18, 2020, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Jims Porter, Communication and Advocacy Manager for RefugeeOne and member of the Golden Door Coalition, will provide a brief background of the refugee crisis, particularly during COVID-19. He will introduce how resettlement works and introduce RefugeeOne’s services and programs. In addition, he will highlight the work and history of the Golden Door Coalition.
- RefugeeOne's mission is to create opportunity for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.
- The Gold Door Coalition's vision is a statewide coalition of refugees, community organizations, faith-based institutions, and others working together across Illinois to foster the dignified resettlement and successful integration of refugee families into the fabric of our communities.
