Community Leaders and Organizers
California has extended a warm welcome to refugees and immigrants. It is recognized as the state resettling the greatest number of refugees in the United States in 2016, according to the Pew Research Center. Over the past 15 years, the State Department shows that California has welcomed 112,000 refugees. The many youth among this group are particularly susceptible to a vast range of difficulties including identity crises, peer pressure, questions of self-worth, separation/loss, and parental conflict.
We will not thrive as a community unless we meet the needs of the most vulnerable among us. ARTogether invites community leaders, organizers, local businesses, and other non profit organizations to engage with its activities. If you are looking for a way to help our refugee and immigrant communities, or can offer access to a facility, a classroom, park or community center, we would love to work with you.
