What We Do

Refugee Congress Delegates know firsthand what it means to be a refugee, asylum-seeker or other vulnerable migrant, and how policies and practices impact our communities. We bring our perspectives to national and local-level discussions and advocacy.

Our Delegates have a wealth of on-the-ground experience meeting with elected officials, sharing our stories, and connecting with our communities.

Locally, we build strong teams of fellow advocates, faith and business communities, and local resettlement agencies and providers.

Nationally, we utilize our platform to connect with advocates across the country to share information and ideas, learn from each other, and take action.  Our work is informed by and in turn informs national efforts through our connections as members of Refugee Council USA and partnerships with national resettlement and advocacy organizations.
