Refugees’ First Thanksgiving

The event is produced by the African Community Center – DC Metro (ACC-DC), the local branch of ECDC working with refugees in the DMV.
The African Community Center of the DC Metro – a branch office of The Ethiopian Community Development Council, Inc. (ECDC) – 1 of 9 Resettlement Agency authorized by the Department of State to resettle refugees. ECDC is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) community-based organization that resettles refugees from countries all over the world.
ACC-DC Metro is responsible for helping D.C. Maryland and Virginia area refugees who have fled violence and persecution in the transition to rebuild their lives through social, educational, and employment programs. Yet, this rebuilding requires more than providing services; we believe safety and sustainability cannot exist without community.
Events like our Refugee’s First Thanksgiving dinner aim to cultivate this community because every new neighbor needs a network.
