IRC to offer Advocacy Training

Would you, or a group you are a part of, like to learn more about advocating on behalf of refugees and immigrants? The IRC conducts capacity building workshops to equip you with the knowledge and tools to effectively advocate for a cause at the family, community and government levels.

Each workshop begins with the facts you need to speak knowledgeably about refugees and refugee resettlement.  This includes the latest information about government policies and decisions that affect resettlement efforts.  Then the workshops hone in on the communication skills you need to become an effective advocate.

To learn more about the IRC’s advocacy efforts, to attend a workshop or schedule a workshop for your group, please call Harold Schlechtweg at 316.295.4488 or email Harold.Schlechtweg [at] Rescue.org.
