Refugees International (RI) promotes solutions to displacement crises and advocates for life-saving assistance and protection for displaced people. It was started in 1979 as a citizens’ movement to protect Indochinese refugees. Since then, it has expanded to become a leading advocacy organization that provokes action from global leaders to resolve refugee crises. RI’s expert recommendations are highly valued by the very people whose decisions bring immediate relief and life-saving solutions to refugees.
A 2018 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network provided critical support for RI’s advocacy efforts to help the Rohingya, particular efforts to fight gender-based violence and better ensure that women and families obtain the protection and assistance they deserve.
