The Welcoming Our New Neighbors program is engaging 30 faith communities in welcoming and resettling refugees. 123 faith leaders, government officials, refugee resettlement agencies and nonprofits met to share resources and initiate advocacy programs. The immoral, un-American and counterproductive ban imposed by President Trump is traumatizing for families in Montgomery County and abroad.
Resources for supporting refugees and advocating for policies reflecting our values are available Welcoming Our New Neighbors. An outreach program has been implemented to affirm our solidarity with mosques that includes attending Jummah Prayer on Fridays.
