Wake-Up Call: Harriet Kuhr

Harriet Kuhr

This week WPVC’s Sunday Morning Wake-up Call host Rick Moore talks with International Rescue Committee Executive Director for Charlottesville Harriet Kuhr about the IRC, its mission, history, process and the current politics of refugee settlement since the Paris attacks.

Harriet Kuhr joined the IRC in Atlanta in 2004 as manager of the program that helps resettled refugees find employment. In 2006, she became the manager of resettlement services, eventually overseeing a staff of some 20 case managers, employment coordinators and logistics specialists. She has been executive director of the IRC in Charlottesville since April 2010.

Her prior work experience includes more than 20 years working in the field of international cultural exchange. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia.

The Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call is heard on WPVC 94.7 Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m.
