RIAC recognized for World Refugee Day!

BY IN News NO COMMENTS YET

On June 27th RIAC helped celebrate World Refugee Day at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, and it was a great event. Our executive director received unexpected (but well deserved!) recognition from Governor Baker presented by Mary Truong, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Office for Refugees & Immigrants.
Here are some pictures!
