Welcome to [RW!]’s new and revamped blog!
Refugees Welcome! is a non-profit organization that provides a platform in the Greater Boston Area, where immigrant and refugee service providers can network and share resources. Additionally, part of [RW!]’s mission is to spread awareness and contribute to general education on topics related to migration. Together, our board members and interns have a wide range of experience in – and a strong passion for – refugee and migration advocacy. This blog will serve as a forum for us to highlight and discuss current issues that matter to us and to our work. We will cover everything from policy and politics to book reviews, interviews, and our personal journeys and experiences – with the one common denominator: migration and refugee issues.
We welcome contributions from independent writers as well, and encourage you to submit your articles or ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you want to enlighten the community on a subject you think is often overlooked, recommend a documentary that sheds light on the refugee experience, or interview someone in your community who is making a difference – we highly value your input and voice, and would love to hear from you!
We hope this blog will serve as a hub for service providers and those interested in the field to stay up-to-date on current issues. Additionally we want this medium to be an open space to discuss and connect with the larger Boston community generally – and with us at [RW!].
The [RW!] team
