The fourth episode of the Reclaim Social Podcast is now live!
This month we’ve talked to Joe Cassidy, Social Media Officer at International Rescue Committee Europe. Joe was a big advocate of the #ReclaimSocial campaign this year with IRC Europe and we wanted to find out more about him and his work.
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Their goal is to help people whose lives are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.
