MCCRC and Peace Action Montgomery are collaborating to build a network of volunteers committed to welcoming refugees — Syrian or otherwise — to our county and our state. To join that effort, just add your name and contact information to the form below:
The form is also available as a standalone web page at http://bit.ly/md4refugees.
To learn more about the issue and progress in welcoming refugees to Maryland, have a look at this resource page developed by Peace Action Montgomery, or numerous refugee-themed posts at this site.; we recommend particularly…
- Takoma Park City Council passes resolution welcoming Syrian refugees 6-0, with an embedded and downloadable copy of that resolution,
- a guest post by Takoma Park resident Dr. Rohini Prabhe Pande, explaining some heartfelt and some very pragmatic reasons we should welcome Syrian refugees, and
- Proposed Syrian refugee resolution for the city of Takoma Park, modeled on a Chicago resolution, with an infographic about the lengthy US vetting process, and links to resources confirming statements of fact in the resolution.
As activity increases, we are likely to move this effort to a web site of its own. Meanwhile, to get in touch with “Maryland Welcomes Refugees” leadership, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org; to follow related news, follow @md4refugees on Twitter.
