One of many organizations that Connie Milstein participates as a board member is Refugees International. This organization sees as its goal the advocacy of bringing life saving help and protection to displaced people around the world while at the same time exploring and promoting solutions to the crisis which is causing the displacement.
Refugees International believes it is crucial to solve the problem of refugees, because if ignored refugees and displaced people have a serious destabilizing effect on international structures. Today there are over 41.9 million refugees, (including internally displaced people) and 12 million stateless people living around the world without citizenship rights.
Connie Milstein, as a board member and Director Emeritus, believes that through the work of Refugees International people in dire need will be helped in addition to having a positive impact on the increased stability of the international community.
