The Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project Debuts New Website
The Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), an organization founded by two Yale Law School students in 2008 to assist Iraqi refugees displaced by the war, has introduced a new website. The website contains a wealth of information about legal and other kinds of assistance IRAP offers to refugees seeking resettlement in the U.S. and Europe—from free legal representation to practical advice on making a new life in an unfamiliar location.
Among the website features are six short videos exploring the struggles and challenges of refugees seeking resettlement; a legal resource center for attorneys and law students assisting refugees; a roadmap for newly arrived refugees on how to navigate life in the U.S., including FAQ’s and an email hotline; a summary of policy reforms IRAP is advocating to improve the U.S. system of refugee resettlement; and suggestions on how people can help support IRAP’s good work.
IRAP director and co-founder Rebecca Heller ’10, who currently teaches an IRAP seminar at the Law School, said, “We are thrilled to launch a comprehensive website with resources for legal advocates, volunteers, and resettled refugees all in one place. I am hopeful that the information on the site will provide a wide audience with the opportunity to learn more about this ongoing humanitarian crisis."
