Reviews for Refugees International

Rating: 5 stars  

I interned at RI during the summer of 2014 and had a fulfilling, pleasant, and interesting experience. RI is an incredible organization that is engaged in important, life-saving advocacy work. The staff is not only focused and capable, but also courteous and respectful to everyone. I can't say enough good things about RI and their laudable work.

I interned at RI in the summer of 2014 and it was evident that the staff was respectful of my time and interests, and tried to guide me towards projects that would be both beneficial to their work as well as my future aspirations. As an intern, I had an opportunity to contribute to their work through blogs, weekly congressional update reports, and longer working papers. I attended meetings and events, both with staff and independently. The staff made me feel appreciated and valued, which contributed to the greatly positive internship experience. Even post-internship, they keep me engaged in their work and I still feel that I am a part of the RI network.

RI ia a small independent advocacy organization that looks at both forgotten refugee and displaced persons situations as well as the most topical ones, like the Syrian refugee crises today. It brings the voices of the victims of war, discrimination, religious and ethnic persecution to US audiences and to members of the United Nations. Now over 30 years old, it has attraced a diverse and committed group of volunteers nnd professional staff to push against compassion fatigue and business as usual responses by aid organizations to higlight the protection needs of displacd families. The passion and dedication of its staff is truly amazing. Funded entirely by private funds, RI darss to speak truth to power - and has pushed the issue of the world's 12 million stateless people to the agenda of the US government and the United Nations. It is a small organization with big clout in raising the alarm for peopl at risk.
