Refugee Night – Student Organization Break the Silence – Saturday 6pm
In the Austin area alone there are an estimated 12,000 refugees from all over the world, and while there are services in place to help refugees get settled, receive education, and find jobs, there are still obstacles in the road to feeling at home here. Break the Silence wants them to feel like a part of the community, so we will be holding this event as a stepping stone to help refugees meet other people in the Austin area.
Come out the Austin Peace Academy on February 18th and bring all your friends and family! We will have dinner and activities for all ages**! We will also be having the esteemed Sheikh Yassir Fazzaga from ICBC giving a short talk inshaAllah. You don’t want to miss this, so buy your tickets now!
**Babysitting services will be provided for children under four
Tickets are $5 and can be bought online at https://www.eventbrite.com/
