Get Informed. Focus Efforts. Increase Impact.
West Michigan has a strong history of welcoming refugees. There are around 25,000 refugees in our area who deserve our support. Come learn about how global and national refugee policy impacts your neighbors, and what you can do locally to make West Michigan a welcoming environment for all.
Together we will learn about the global refugee crisis, address questions about the U.S. refugee resettlement program including the selection and vetting process, and explore strategies for how to support our refugee friends and neighbors.
The event is free but there is a suggested donation of $10 which will be used to help support refugee children and families in our community.
The event will be held on Monday, February 20th from 6-8 PM at the Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids Cathedral Square (Map).
