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!
