Please join for a panel discussion, featuring the perspectives of implementing faith-based  organizations on the refugee and migration compacts. The panel of experts will discuss our learnings from serving refugees and migrants around the world, emphasizing the need to keep refuges and migrants themselves at the center of the Compacts. We will highlight the role of morals and values drawn from our faith backgrounds in our work, and those we seek to assist, and present policy recommendations both for the US Government, and international community.

Breakfast will be provided.
Virtual reality viewing will be available before and after the event
