For their devotion to migrant and refugee rights, the Board voted unanimously to appoint them as Board Members Emeritus.

Richard and Dominick Muracco III.  Anne Richard served as Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration during the Obama Administration. She currently teaches at Georgetown University and serves as the Freedom House Distinguished Fellow and Afghanistan Coordination Lead.
