EVENT:

Join RefugeeOne to hear from the co-author of a recent report that highlights the contributions of refugees (i.e. refugees end up paying more in taxes than they receive in public benefits just 8 years after arriving in the US). You'll hear from a diverse panel of academic, corporate, and refugee voices about the value of having refugees in our community. The program will take place on 11/13 at WeWork at 20 N. Kinzie Street, 17th floor. Reception at 5:30pm and event from 6:00-7:30pm.
