In the current political landscape, it is more important than ever to make sure that we, as service providers, are re-evaluating the needs of our immigrant and refugee communities and are able to pivot to make sure that we are able to deliver the best level of services to our community members. With more fear, risk, and changes given the constant changes in rules, regulations, and lived experiences, the need to gather and disseminate information, update education for our staff, and evaluate what services we provide is critical. We will learn how to:

  • Establish what the barriers and benefits are to building a welcoming community
  • Understand various concepts that are integral to working with immigrant and refugee communities
  • Build collaborative efforts with other organizations and services
  • Educate our clients, community members, and staff about how to support, protect, and prepare them in this changing political landscape
