  • Our Mission

    Partnership for the Advancement of Refugee Rights (PARR) is a student-led organization at the University of Chicago, which strives to raise awareness of the issues refugees face in the United States and globally, work with refugee families in the greater Chicago area, and advocate for political change both nationally and globally. We specifically hope to build a longstanding tradition of constructive engagement with the Chicago refugee community through these three avenues.
