Staff members and our IRIS refugee ambassadors travel all over the state and region engaging with community members on important issues. We present in many different settings, encouraging connection to refugees, a deeper understanding of the refugee experience, and a celebration of the welcoming spirit that makes our nation strong. We encourage you to attend any of our upcoming public events.
If you do not find an event listed in a town near you, stay posted! We will update this page as new opportunities arise.
If you would like IRIS to participate in or plan an event with your organization, please contact Ann O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to make arrangements with you. We love meeting new people and organizations at IRIS!

NMS Faculty Concert Series – A Raft of Wings
Organized by the Neighborhood Music School, and Co-presented by Pete DiGennaro and Dr. Jennifer Klein, this concert celebrates the power of cultural practices to overcome fear, unveil the truth, and liberate hope. Artists from the NMS faculty, from the Hartford / New Haven Arts Communities, and from Cape Verde and Tanzania (via Skype) will perform separately and together, to honor our shared humanity. Amnesty International, Nasty Women New Haven, NYU’s Department of Arts Politics, and IRIS (Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services) will be on hand to share their work and opportunities with everyone, as well. We look forward to seeing you!
