Advocate for Refugees

Learn what defines a refugee, how they come to the US and how the US keeps its citizens safe throughout that process.

You can download the Refugee Fact Sheet (from Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services) as a place to start.

Then, start spreading this information wherever you can, and encourage others to become Co-Sponsors, Volunteer, Advocate or give financially to the efforts of Canopy NWA.

We encourage you to sign-on to to the sector specific letters and share them with business leaders, faith leaders, those in the health sector, and educators in your community. Sign-on letters below. 

Additionally, please take some time to contact our Elected officials to show your support for Refugee Resettlement in Northwest Arkansas.  Contact information below.
