TEDxTheCountrySchool - 5995357
Bushra speaking

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 aobrien@irisct.org and we will be happy to make arrangements with you. We love meeting new people and organizations at IRIS!
