Raise Your Voice Refugee Advocacy Workshops, September 23, 26, and 28th
Raise your voices for the refugees! Come to one of the three hands-on advocacy workshops hosted by NOVA Friends of Refugees to learn practical ways to increase your impact and influence on policy makers. This is a critical time to act for refugees. The Administration is deciding now on the number of refugees to resettle and Congress is considering funding cuts for refugee resettlement programs. There is no time to waste. Each of the three workshops brings together experts from RESULTS and refugee resettlement agencies to equip you with techniques to effectively advocate for refugees or any issues that are dear to you. For information or Contact Wendy Chan ( ) or Norma Kacen ( ) for questions.
