    On June 10th, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Refugee Advocacy Lab will host the upcoming States Lay the Foundation Summit - highlighting the successes and opportunities for policies that support refugee resettlement and integration across the United States.

    The Summit - the third annual hosted by IRC and the Refugee Advocacy Lab - will feature bipartisan panel conversations between state legislators from across the U.S. on the key role that states play in supporting refugee integration and ensuring newcomers are welcomed to their new communities.

    Panelists will speak to the impact of legislation they have introduced to address language access, education, economic empowerment, and how this contributes to the successful integration of newcomers in their communities. Policy experts from the IRC and Refugee Advocacy Lab will be on hand to share best practices in identifying and advancing these policies across diverse state contexts.

    Whether you are a legislator, staffer, or advocate, attendees will have direct access to the policy resources and technical support needed to replicate such measures within their own states.
