Who We Are
Launched in 2019, this refugee-led group focuses on civic engagement, community outreach, and community organizing around key issues identified by community members. Research and data gathered by CARE provides deeper insight into the immigrant and refugee community experience.
Civic Action for Refugee Empowerment
CARE members are trained in research methods to help better understand and shed light on the experiences and assets of immigrant and refugee communities. Data and results are shared by CARE members with community leaders and stakeholders across sectors.
CARE is committed to broadening the bench of representation of refugee and immigrant communities in decision making entities through civic leadership training and connecting to leadership roles with boards and commissions, advisory councils, and other leadership opportunities.
Making an Impact
CARE members combine lived experience, leadership, and research to help influence policy change at institutional, systemic, and government levels.
We support community based research to look deeper into the refugee and immigrant experience. Download and read research papers supported by our program.
