USA for UNHCR: Art and Resilience Live Benefit Auction 2021

Art and Resilience: a contemporary art auction to support Syrian refugees
USA for UNHCR’s Humanitarian Coalition presents this online auction featuring selected works by some of the most celebrated artists of our time. All proceeds from the event will support Syrian refugees provide lifesaving support to the 6.6 million Syrian refugees who continue to show strength and perseverance in the face of incredible challenges, ten years since the conflict began.

About USA for UNHCR:
USA for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, serves vulnerable people around the world who have been forced to flee their homes because of violence, conflict and persecution. Through the generosity of the American people, USA for UNHCR helps refugees survive, provides hope for recovery and prepares them for independence in a new and permanent home. We are with refugees from their greatest time of need – from emergency or crisis and beyond through the months and likely years that many are displaced from their home countries.

Coalition members from across the U.S. bring a wealth of passion, influence and connections that will protect refugees and empower them with hope and opportunity.
