In 2015, CWS Global recognized the need for refugee voices to be strengthened and began investing in refugee community organizing. As opposed to agency-led advocacy, organizing equips refugees with the skills, confidence, and opportunities to become leaders, advocates, and change agents in their own right.

 

In August 2019, CWSG joined other CWS affiliates in hiring a local refugee organizer. We are excited to strengthen leadership capacity within the refugee community so that refugees themselves are at the forefront of directing refugee integration and success.

 

If you are a refugee interested in gaining leadership skills and working towards the advancement of the refugee community in Greensboro, reach out to Dosse Amedin at damedin@cwsglobal.org or call the CWSG office at 336-617-0381.
