Rochester Refugee Women's Network

The Rochester Refugee Women's Network brings together women from the global refugee community in Rochester, New York, for the purpose of education and empowerment. The Network includes women from all over the world who have resettled in Rochester, plus health care professionals, representatives from the resettlement agency, a county legislator, college and graduate school students and interns, and many supportive volunteers.

Through social networking,education, and cultural orientation, RRWN seeks to make the resettlement process more successful, build friendships across cultures and languages, and expand all of our worlds through learning from one another.
