Assistant Secretary Noyes’ Trip to Pennsylvania

Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration Julieta Valls Noyes will travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, August 15-16. In Philadelphia, Assistant Secretary Noyes will thank local refugee resettlement partners and recognize Philadelphia as a leading city in refugee resettlement. She will salute the city’s contributions to Operation Allies Welcome as one of two major entry points that received flights from Afghans en route to other destinations across the United States. Deputy Secretary Noyes will also celebrate the “City of Brotherly Love” for welcoming and resettling hundreds of Afghans over the past year and refugees for many years.

During her visit, Deputy Secretary Noyes will meet with city and state officials, including the mayor, as well as refugee resettlement agency affiliates Nationalities Service Center (NSC) and HIAS Pennsylvania. She will also speak with resettlement partner staff and volunteers, community sponsors and leaders, refugee employers, health care providers and others who welcome Afghans so warmly to Philadelphia, and will meet with newly arrived refugees.
