PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — As a summer intern at Boston’s Refugee and Immigrant Assistance Center (RIAC) — a community-based, nonprofit, grassroots human service agency that provides comprehensive services to refugees, asylees and immigrants — Brown undergraduate Hannah Rosenstein learned firsthand how on-the-ground work and relationships are essential to creating good policy. "My classes at Brown have been awesome," Rosenstein said, "and I've learned a lot, but an internship is where you can really put that into practice. The work at RIAC has definitely helped me contextualize what I've learned in the classroom." Video by Stephen Crocker.
