Community Organizing

Creating a welcoming North Carolina requires that refugees and immigrants have the confidence, skills, and opportunities to influence the attitudes, practices, and systems that impact their lives.

Community Organizing harnesses the strengths and leadership potential already at work within the refugee community and empowers refugee neighbors to act on issues that matter most to them.

Are you a former refugee? Are you frustrated by policies, practices, or narratives that impact you and your family?

You can be an agent of change.
