Getting the Word out

The CWS advocacy lead develops and implements strategies to increase support for refugee resettlement with policymakers in the state of Virginia. The program also supports building refugees' civic engagement efforts in Virginia through capacity building and trainings.

At CWS Harrisonburg, we recognize all too well that refugees can be a forgotten topic unless drastic events are happening in the world. We want others to understand that refugees come from all corners of the globe, seeking a safer life than the one they once lived.
