Support for Afghan Refugees

Tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan who have been evacuated, and more on the way, now face the daunting challenge to rebuild their lives from scratch in new places, including many thousands who already have been arriving in New Jersey

Support for Haitian Disaster Relief 

We likewise feel the impact as, once again, the dual natural disasters of an earthquake and catastrophic weather have devastated Haiti, with thousands of lives lost and many more thousands injured and facing homelessness, the effects of which ripple across the Haitian diaspora, including at Rutgers-Newark

Support for Hurricane Ida Relief

Many members of the Rutgers-Newark family and beyond continue to grapple with devastating impacts from Hurricane Ida.
