Uplifting the Leadership of Refugees in Community Engagement
Refugee voices, stories and leadership should be at the center of our community engagement strategies. On this webinar we will discuss the important role of allies to uplift the leadership of refugees in our work. We will hear first-hand experiences from CWS Virginia Refugee Organizer, Rodrigue Makelele, about his own story and the power of refugee leadership to win welcoming and inclusive policies in Harrisonburg and Virginia. Participants will come away with new insight on how to integrate refugee voices and leadership in their community engagement work.
