Advancing a Welcoming Infrastructure for Humanitarian Relief

As individuals and organizations in localities across the globe mobilize to support those displaced by war, conflict, and climate disasters, meeting the immediate needs is critical. At the same time, building the infrastructure needed to support and engage migrants and non-migrants in the long term is essential to ensuring belonging for all lasts beyond these events.

In this new guide, Welcoming America and the Welcoming International Alliance outline five ways for local leaders to create equitable and welcoming environments as part of the response to humanitarian relief. Local leaders can find checklists, resource links, and ideas for building a durable infrastructure within communities so that when the next crisis hits, they are ready to respond effectively.
