Event Description

World Refugee Day is an international day of awareness, designated by the United Nations, to honor refugees, persecuted people from around the world. IRIS celebrates this event by highlighting the arts and cultures of our clients and refugees around the world.

This year, the centerpiece of IRIS's celebration will be a special advanced screening of "A Place in the World", a new documentary.
The film's website (http://aplaceintheworldfilm.com/) says this about the film:
"Right outside Atlanta, Georgia is a small charter school that brings together refugee children from war-torn countries all over the world and teaches them alongside local American children. A Place In The World follows three families with ties to the school, a first-year teacher, and the new principal of the school over the course of two years, as they adapt to, and learn from, this diverse and complex social environment. The film asks the question of whether we can learn to live together in this rapidly changing world."

In addition to the film screening, World Refugee Day offers live music, visual art and photography, and an incredible spread of international food. This year, the event will start at 3:30pm, with special programming for children; it will feature refugee children performing music and dance, and a storyteller sharing stories from around the world.

The event is presented with generous support from PIER (Programs in International Educational Resources) of the MacMillan Center at Yale University.

Suggested Donation: $25 for adults, proceeds to benefit IRIS
There will be two screenings of the film, at 5:30pm and 7:30pm.

A Partnership Dedicated to Economic Inclusion: Five Questions for Wells Fargo’s Jenny Flores

LISC and Wells Fargo have worked together for more than three decades to expand economic opportunity for underserved communities, investing more than $1.7 billion in affordable housing, economic development and entrepreneurship--with $182 million invested in the last three years alone. We recently asked Jenny Flores, head of Small Business Growth Philanthropy for the bank, about what drives its community commitments and why CDFIs like LISC are important to its strategy.

The Transformative Power of an Expungement Clinic in the Mississippi Delta

One in three Americans has a criminal record, many of which reflect dropped charges or fines their holders simply couldn't afford to pay. In Greenville, MS, where far too many people, especially Black residents, can't pursue their goals because of barriers created by their records, LISC and a coalition of partners launched an expungement program to help job- and education-seekers get those charges and fines dismissed. It's part of a movement to upend the criminalization of poverty and help people advance on the path to wellbeing and financial stability, in Greenville and beyond.
