Now more than ever your voice is needed to support, welcome, and protect refugees.
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.
Our Advocacy Team
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.

Engage National and State Elected Leaders
At the national and state levels, individuals who oppose refugee resettlement are making their voices heard loudly and frequently to policy makers.
