Community Sponsorship: Creating Communities of Welcome

Recorded on April 11, 2023. In partnership with Community Sponsorship Hub, this webinar discussed community sponsorship in the United States. We identified the broad ecosystem, programs, and actors, as well as how the experiences of these programs have supported other emergency response programs, and the difference between community sponsorship and other forms of sponsorship.
