Minneapolis-based American Refugee Committee (ARC) threw out all the stops for its Changemakers Ball.

The event, held at the refurbished Armory in downtown Minneapolis, was a music- and video-packed gala designed to celebrate the best of humanity and spark humanitarian change, said President and CEO Daniel Wordsworth.

ARC works with partners and constituents to help refugees and displaced people survive conflict and crisis and rebuild lives of dignity, health, security and self-sufficiency in Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere.
