African Refuge

Serving African Refugees, immigrants and low-income families since 2003.

Human Rights and Social Justice Project

The Human Rights and Social Justice Project is African Refuge's advocacy arm in the Liberian and international human rights community. We aim to bring the challenges facing the African refugee community here in Staten Island to the attention of New Yorkers and Americans alike. We are also a strong voice for reform and recovery in Liberia, paying specific attention to the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's 2009 report in order to ensure lasting peace and prosperity in Liberia. Finally, we advocate for the peaceful resolution of African conflicts and the institutionalization of justice and democratic society across the continent.

Human Rights and Social Justice Events

The Symposium on the Future of Liberia, held on Friday October 29 and Saturday, October 30 at the New School, was a great success! Read what the media had to say about the event:
