Raise Your Voice! refugee advocacy workshop
Join us for a hands-on advocacy workshop hosted by NOVA Friends of Refugees. This is a critical time to act for refugees. The Administration is deciding now on the number of refugees that it will allow to resettle in the U.S. in 2018. Congress is considering funding cuts for refugee resettlement programs. And in Virginia, legislators continue to pass anti-refugee bills that only the governor’s vetoes have prevented from becoming law. The workshop brings together experts from RESULTS and Church World Service who can help you effectively advocate for refugees with your elected officials at federal, state and local levels. Can’t make this workshop? There are two more at other locations on Sept 26 and 28.
