Monthly dinner to raise money for the Syrian refugees in Fresno-

This is a great way for people to contribute to these families, and also gives others a chance to attach a face to the name “refugee”, it humanizes this issue we hear so much about and reminds us that we are all human, and all deserving of respect and dignity. This is an initiative undertaken by Human Rights Coalition.
