Haitians and Afghans in Crisis: Lessons for Rapid Resettlement

Host Organization: Philanthropy New York


Last year, the US military withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Haitian earthquake, and political, economic, and health crises in Haiti and South America sent nationals of both countries searching for safety and stability. New York City is home to the second-largest concentration of Haitians in the United States and the third-largest concentration of Afghans, making it a natural destination for both populations.

Join us for a discussion of how advocacy groups and service providers are serving new arrivals, the relevant government policies and programs, and the role of philanthropy in helping those who arrive today—and improving the infrastructure for those who arrive in the future.

What will you learn?

  • The history of US intervention in Haiti and Afghanistan
  • Recent conditions driving people from Haiti and Afghanistan, respectively, to flee their home countries for the United States
  • The needs of Haitian and Afghan refugees arriving in New York, the nonprofits supporting them, and the gaps in services
  • Lessons for nonprofits, government, and philanthropy on how to stand up successful rapid resettlement efforts and how rapid response efforts feed into medium- and long-term infrastructure building for movement work.

Who Should Attend?

All interested funders in grantmaking roles. What to expect: presentation followed by roundtable discussions.
