Greenwich gathers to "Stand Against Racism"

Greenwich Time 26.April.2019: Fleeing violence in Eritrea, Marwa and her family came to the U.S. in 2016. When she arrived in Fairfield County, Marwa didn’t speak any English.

“She is now fluent in English, graduating in June and will be attending Fairfield University in the fall,” Claudia Connor, president and CEO of the Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants, said at the Stand Against Racism event held Friday by the YWCA Greenwich. Pushed inside by the rain, over 100 people gathered inside Greenwich Town Hall for the 11th annual event.
