Event description

Description

Please join the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) for an afternoon of storytelling and support for rebuilding refugee lives.

The afternoon begins with a one-woman play Miracle in Rwanda, which tells the incredible story of Rwandan Genocide Survivor Immaculée Ilibagiza, a real life messenger of hope.

Immediately following the performance we will have a panel discussion about Rwanda - then and now - and how USCRI's work helps refugees and immigrants rebuild their lives after such atrocities. For the panel, Eskinder Negash, President and CEO of USCRI, and Leslie Lewis, creator of Miracle in Rwanda, will be joined by special guest Joseph Sebarenzi, who was the President of the Parliament of Rwanda immediately following the genocide, and author of God Sleeps in Rwanda.

Stay with us after the show for a reception to meet the panelists and learn how you can join USCRI's efforts. Reception drinks and small bites are included with your ticket.

Event schedule:

  • 3:00-4:15: Miracle in Rwanda performance
  • 4:15-5:00: Post-show panel discussion with Eskinder Negash, Leslie Lewis, and Joseph Sebarenzi
  • 5:00-6:00: Reception in Theatre Row

All tickets include the performance, post-show discussion, and reception.

VIP tickets include a signed copy of Dr. Sebarenzi's book, acknowledgement in the program and USCRI social media, and priority seating. A portion of the VIP tickets may be tax-deductible as allowable by law.



This event is hosted by the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, a nonprofit organization working to help refugees, immigrants, and uprooted people live dignified lives with their rights respected and protected in communities of opportunity.
