Opera singer Danielle de Niese has accepted a new role: She became an ‘IRC Voice’ to help the International Rescue Committee raise awareness of the needs of refugees and people who have been displaced by conflict, religious persecution or political oppression around the world.

The IRC was founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein. In September 2014, Danielle de Niese will travel to Tanzania with the IRC to learn more about the organization’s child protection work, focusing on child labor. While on this trip, she will perform at an IRC event for ministers of the Tanzanian government. Before the end of 2014, De Niese also plans to visit resettled refugees in the San Francisco Bay Area and serve as a guest teacher at Oakland International High School.
