Forum: An answer to the refugee crisis
SALISBURY — Refugees fleeing the world’s worst conflicts have created one of the world’s most serious problems. More than 50,000 people are forced from their homelands every day. But George Rupp, who will speak at a Salisbury Forum on Friday, April 21, believes there are ways to prevent this flood of displaced people.
Rupp has experienced the refugee crisis first hand: He led the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and its staff of more than 12,000 based in more than 40 countries from 2002 until 2013.
