On Thursday, May 12, we hosted the second Refugees Welcome national launch call and had over 130 participants! We are so excited to lift up the refugees’ stories, celebrate refugees’ community contributions, and strengthen welcoming communities across the United States. Click to listen to the May 12th call recording and watch the presentation.
We invite you to consider hosting events to welcome refugees!
We encourage you to contact: Disciples Refugee & Immigration Ministries
at: email@example.com or (202) 957-7826, for further support and information about how to welcome refugees in your area and state. Also for more information about how to sponsor refugees near you and how to support immigrant rights in you area.
Consider inviting your U.S. Senators and Representatives, as well as your state legislators to your refugees welcome events. It is the perfect opportunity to encourage them to support refugee resettlement in your area! To find out if your state legislature has introduced anti-refugee legislation, click here.
