The Linking Communities Project: Creating Welcome for Refugees

This workshop for stakeholders throughout the State of Ohio addresses how to increase support for refugee resettlement and integration in their local communities or in the state as a whole. Designed to train state stakeholders on selected topics, facilitate collaboration among them, and initiate action planning for grant proposals, this meeting will draw from a broad range of attendees, including representatives of national and local resettlement agencies, state and local government, schools, other service providers, and members of the UNHCR Refugee Congress, with strong representation by ethnic community-based organizations.

Facilitator: Colleen Mahar-Piersma, Associate Director, Immigrant and Refugee Integration
