Rian Immigrant Center 2021 Year in Review

Mar 15, 2022
  • Description

At the time of print, Russia is waging war in Ukraine, and the humanitarian, refugee crises in Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Haiti, Central America and elsewhere weigh heavy. The pandemic has resulted in deep loss and pain for so many – and disproportionally on marginalized immigrant families. It's a dark picture. In this context, we share a summary of the work of our immigration legal, education, resource and support services, advocacy, and international learning exchange teams. Our hearts are full of gratitude for your support - our donors, foundations, government and community partners. Thank you for standing in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors. We are grateful for our longstanding partnerships with Rosie's Place and the Boston Medical Center, and for being able to assist more immigrant patients at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Healthcare for the Homeless (with Health Law Advocates), and assisting more K-12 immigrant students in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville (with Enroot), Revere, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, and Winthrop.
