According to the International Rescue Committee, it costs $85 to apply for a Green Card and $265 to apply for American citizenship. Many aspiring Americans can't afford the price—and that's where Paper Plates: A Feast for Freedom comes in. Created by the IRC, this fundraising dinner is meant to "uplift Boise's vibrant refugee and immigrant community through international cuisine, music, art, and craftsmanship." All of the proceeds will go toward funding Green Card and citizenship applications. Dinner is included in the ticket price, and diners can fill their minds as well as their stomachs, with speakers like New Roots Director Liz Urban, Boise City Council member Lauren McLean and Boise State Refugee Alliance President Freddy Nyakulinda.
