WHAT WE DO

ADVOCACY: The statewide Florida Advocacy table for Refugees & Asylees meets on a monthly basis and helps support refugee/asylee campaign efforts, promotes positive change in shifting public perception towards refugees and asylees, and drives local and statewide policy change.

ORGANIZE AND MOBILIZE: We organize and mobilize Florida communities in order to respond to local, state, and national actions. This includes faith groups, community activists, organizations, coalitions, and others in taking action at the grassroots to stand for welcome.

SUPPORT: We are strengthening our work by growing support and building our base for Florida’s refugees and asylum seekers.

REFUGEE LEADERSHIP: We are continually activating new refugee and migrant leaders by uplifting their voices and through leadership development training. This is accomplished through University Without Walls political education.
