Presented by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees

From Denver to D.C., cities across the country continue to welcome asylum seekers being bussed and flown in from Texas and Florida. Local governments, nonprofit providers, and philanthropic partners are all playing key roles in responding to urgent needs while building the infrastructure needed to receive these migrants and prepare for possible future arrivals. Join GCIR for this peer-to-peer discussion session to learn about the challenges local leaders are encountering while addressing the needs of these newly arriving migrants. We will also explore the strategies currently being developed and refined for building strong response networks. It has become clear that - in addition to resources - communication, coordination, and adaptability are essential to a successful response. This session will provide an opportunity for participants to share their experiences and ask questions about strategies for welcoming and supporting new arrivals.
