    Organizational History

    The Refugee Forum of Orange County (RFOC) is an umbrella group of organizations and individuals who work with refugees. The purpose of the organization is to assist in the successful resettlement of refugees in Orange County, and to enable them to obtain the resources necessary to become self-supporting and contributing members of society. The RFOC was formed in 1976.
    The California State Refugee Forum (CSRF) is a statewide organization composed of representatives from county and regional refugee forums, refugee service providers, and individuals interested in refugee issues. Revitalized in 1996, it meets regionally and at the annual Refugee Information Exchange Conference.
    Anne Frank, who was responsible for assembling this collection, served as chair of the RFOC from 1995-1997 and 2002-2003, and as secretary of the CSRF from 1996-1999.
