This Saturday, the Baltimore office of the International Rescue Committee–an organization that helps resettle refugees in the area—is hosting a lunch to raise awareness about the particular difficulties facing female refugees in the United States. Sheilah talks to Claudia Connor, the IRC’s Regional Director for U.S. Programs.
