Thank you to all who participated in ERICA's virtual celebration of World Refugee Day 2021. To all who are part of the ERICA network -- program participants, volunteers, donors, community partners -- thank you for creating a space in which we can work together toward genuine welcome. It has been a tough year and a half but increased collaboration and your can do approach has enabled ERICA to respond nimbly and effectively. Baltimore is becoming a more welcoming city and Maryland a more welcoming state because of you.
The Episcopal Refugee and Immigrant Center Alliance (ERICA) welcomes those fleeing injustice, persecution, and poverty in other countries.
