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 emergency situation hits, they are ready to respond effectively.

Since 2009, Welcoming America has developed timely resources for local governments, organizations, and communities that are working to foster greater community support and understanding for immigrants and refugees.

The webinars and toolkits in our resource library represent a wide range of topics related to immigrant inclusion and welcoming work including: narrative change, inclusive economic development, DACA information, and much more.
