Tent Partnership for Refugees

The Tent Partnership, which incorporated the private sector commitments announced in response to President Obama’s 2016 Call to Action, serves as a platform for companies to share information and best practices, increase private sector coordination, and forge innovative solutions to deliver greater impact in response to the global refugee crisis.
