As a leading educational institution, NWC “informs today’s decision-makers and educates tomorrow’s leaders.”
In Providence, Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will visit Beautiful Day, a local gourmet food company with a mission that supports resettled refugees in Rhode Island by offering training programs and supporting their transition to the job market. The Ambassador will discuss the Biden-Harris Administration’s “Welcome Corps” initiative aimed at welcoming refugees seeking freedom and safety and, in turn, make a difference in their own communities.
