“City of Thorns” Event in New York (15 February 2017)​​​​​​​

28 April 2017

On 15 February 2017, more than 50 people joined UWC NYC in New York City for a conversation with Ben Rawlence, author of "City of Thorns: Inside the World’s Largest Refugee Camp" and former researcher at the Human Rights Watch. Inspired by the event organized by UWC International in London in 2016, where over 100 guests had an opportunity to listen to Ben speak about his experience in Daadab, Kenya, all proceeds from this event went towards the UWC NY fundraiser towards a refugee scholarship, contributing to the UWC Refugee Initiative.
