USCRI Webinar: The Crisis in Sudan

By USCRI June 28, 2023

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) is monitoring the humanitarian and displacement crisis in Sudan. USCRI serves Sudanese refugees and refugees from neighboring countries such as South Sudan and the Central African Republic- and some USCRI employees have family members back in Sudan affected by the insecurity generated by the conflict.

For World Refugee Day, USCRI hosted a webinar on the crisis in Sudan, its roots in colonial and post-independence history, and potential domestic and international policy solutions to enhance protection for those displaced by the violence between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). The webinar featured USCRI North Carolina Field Office Director Omer Omer and USCRI Policy Analyst Daniel Salazar.
