International Rescue Committee 40th Anniversary Celebration and Open House

Please join the IRC in Atlanta as we celebrate 40 years of welcoming refugees to rebuild their lives in Georgia communities!
This year, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Atlanta is celebrating our 40th anniversary. Since our opening in 1979—together with Georgians from all walks of life—we have welcomed more than 26,500 refugees from 67 countries to rebuild their lives in communities across the state. We invite the entire community—current and past clients, staff, volunteers, donors, partners and supporters—to join us on Thursday, May 16, from 6 – 8 pm at the IRC in Atlanta to celebrate 40 Years of Welcome!

Meet our dedicated team and learn about the IRC in Atlanta’s 40-year history as well as new and exciting initiatives, celebrate the incredible new Americans who have enriched our community over the past four decades, and experience international food and refreshments from local refugee and immigrant artisans and business owners!

Together we will rise to meet the needs of refugees and immigrants arriving in Georgia, and continue to support our community for the next 40 years and beyond.
