Advocacy is often an overlooked and under-represented form of support, and in this current climate filled with anti-refugee and anti-immigrant sentiments, we need you now more than ever. We need supportive voices echoing the facts about the process of resettlement and the positive realities that new arrivals bring with them.

Consider how you can educate your community members, families, and friends on the issues affecting refugee resettlement today. Remember your voice can be heard, and must be, if we are to work together to create safe space for vulnerable people escaping conflict seeking refuge in our communities. Our collective knowledge and self-education is a huge part of what makes our spaces continually welcoming.
