A Guide to America for Iraqi Refugees
Refugee Roadmap, a program of IRAP (Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project) which is based at the Urban Justice Center (a non-profit organization in New York), provides assistance to refugees by answering their questions about life in America. Refugees can start by asking a question, in the box above, or by checking the library to see if their question has already been answered. Refugee Roadmap does not provide legal assistance or advice about particular resettlement cases. If you have a question about achieving permission to resettle in the U.S., contact IRAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
