June 20th - 6:30-9:30pm
Brooklyn Grange - Brooklyn Navy Yard Farm
Take a stand this year: refugees are welcome here.
Join us for food and drinks in celebration of World Refugee Day and the incredible people seeking refuge in New York City.
Those seeking safety in the United States face more hostility and uncertainty than ever before. After fleeing persecution based on their identities race, sexuality, ethnic background or political opinion asylum seekers arrive here to find further alienation and a void of institutional support.
RIF is dedicated to countering isolation, and to ensuring that refugees feel welcomed in New York City.
On World Refugee Day, we will gather together to proclaim our support for those seeking safety in our city. There is no better place to do that than Brooklyn Grange, the site of RIFs Urban Farm Recovery Project, which has become a sanctuary for so many people that we serve.
Spend an evening on the farm with us to learn more about our work, and support the only organization in NYC dedicated to welcoming asylum seekers!
We will be raffling off some exciting experiences and items including a private tour and workshop tickets at Brooklyn Grange! Raffle tickets can be purchased with General Admission tickets, as well as at the door.
