Your Voice Matters

Advocacy helps to transform policies and services that affect refugees and asylum seekers. Join RCUSA in support of our advocacy efforts!

It is more important than ever to meet with your local, state, and national policy makers to educate them about the vital role that refugees and all newcomers play in your communities. Because change takes time, meetings with policy makers should be viewed as part of a continuing process of gathering and sharing information, building relationships, and developing and carrying out advocacy strategies.

Engage Local Policy Makers

Our City, municipal, and other local organisation and commissions need to hear that their communities stand ready to help refugees integrate and thrive. Urge your local leaders to adopt welcoming resolutions that extend hospitality to refugees and all newcomers.
