Announcing Our New NNJ Chapter Podcast Series

UN Day, October 24 for an introductory video on the launch of our new podcast series, Building a Better World!
In honor of UN Day the first podcast will recognize the work of the International Rescue Committee in New Jersey. We'll interview Alison Millan, the IRC Director from the Elizabeth office, along with Mustafa, a refugee who has resettled here in NJ. It's going to be an interesting and informative show.
The podcast will be posted online around November 1 and will be broadcast on public radio in Newark on November 20.
