Refugee Solidarity Network: 2nd Annual Fundraiser
Refugee Solidarity Network (RSN) is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization working to protect and advance the rights of refugees by building capacity of local partners in key host countries, advocating for innovative rights-based refugee assistance policies and programs, and raising awareness of the refugee experience.

RSN supports projects in the world's largest host country of refugees, Turkey, as well as neighboring countries Greece and Bulgaria, with a goal of improving protection standards for refugees across the globe.

On Saturday, October 1, RSN will hold its 2nd fundraiser in NY, an evening to come together and learn about our work and join a community in solidarity while enjoying food, drink, and entertainment.

Food generously provided by Brooklyn restaurant Dar 525. http://www.dar525.com/

Eklektikon, an importer of eclectic Greek wine, will be pouring Stamnaki Greek wine.

Ali Issa, the author of Against All Odds: Voices of Popular Struggle in Iraq, is the National Field Organizer with War Resisters League, where he is co-coordinator of a campaign to end police militarization. He is originally from Iowa and holds a Master's in Arabic Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. His literary translations have appeared in Banipal, the PEN World Atlas Blog, and Jadaliyya where he is a contributor on Iraqi social movements. He is a member of the community funding committee of the North Star Fund, a foundation that provides grants to grassroots community groups. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Daro Behroozi is a saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, improviser and composer from Brooklyn, NY. He has worked as an archivist and DJ at WKCR, as a cultural organizer with Arts for Art, and as a student activist with Students for Justice in Palestine. He is a longtime member of Lucky Chops, an internationally touring instrumental dance music group. 2016 has seen the debut of his solo saxophone/oral history project which places his saxophone in conversation with radical histories that he seeks to channel and advance through his music, as well as the group Ensemble Fanaa, a trio that explores the past and future of global musical exchange. Daro views his music making as a practice of radical love, and continues to share the transformative potential of his music with audiences around the world.
