Does your organization need more tools to better serve refugees and other migrant populations? How much do you know about the populations you serve?  

RAIN is offering a number of training modules tailored to help organizations gain tools to better understand the populations they are serving.

Due to the severe policy changes and program cuts faced by many of our refugee and immigrant-serving organizations, it’s critical we all rise up and gain knowledge and skills to support our communities.

Cultural Considerations

Trauma and Loss

How structures influence the situation

Local or federal systems

Regional or country wide laws may influence how a refugee is able to access basic needs, and their perceptions of assistance

Political Climates (immigration laws & politics)

Rhetoric and actions coming from legislators can impact how refugees perceive their safety and dictate how they seek assistance

Public Perception (Confronting Negative Narratives)

Stereotypes and false narratives can influence how local communities view and welcome refugees, often isolating people and making it more difficult to interact with basic services.
