Under the guidance of Rebecca Green, Kursten Pickup, and Jess Wyatt, refugee youths created a mural at the market. The mural was installed on the IRC building and tells the story of the journey of the refugee from their homeland to their new home in Baltimore.
|The IRC hosts a drum circle every week.|
Featured Organization: The International Rescue Committee in Baltimore.
The IRC provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination. In Baltimore and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps them rebuild their lives.Via the IRC website
