THIS YEAR, LIRS CelebrateD World Refugee Day with A VIRTUAL Advocacy Day!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LIRS hosted a virtual advocacy day on Tuesday, June 23. We had 56 participants representing 28 states and comprising former refugees, faith leaders, LIRS staff, and volunteers, and held 67 meetings with Congressional offices.
Although meetings couldn’t take place in person on Capitol Hill, we still made our voices heard. Thank you to all who participated, and to the legislative offices that took the time to meet with us!
