Amplify Austin Events: MAKE YOUR IMPACT!

There are SO MANY ways to get involved with RST during Amplify Austin- don't miss your chance to join in on the FUN that goes along with raising money to support refugees in your community!

  • Refugee Services of Texas Presents: A screening of the award-winning film Unsettled, followed by a panel discussion with refugee and asylee clients, community resource partners and RST staff.    

    Unsettled is a feature-length documentary revealing the untold stories of LGBT refugees and asylum seekers who have fled intense persecution from their home countries and who are resettling in the United States. As new leadership in America continues to demonize immigrants and drastically restrict the flow of refugees and asylum seekers into the U.S., Unsettled humanizes a group few people know who are desperately trying to create new and safer homes.
    *RST advises screening for ages 16 and up*

    5:30-6:30pm | Check-in, Silent Auction, Raffle and Henna Tattoos available
