Season Two, Episode Six of Hometown features interviews from Refugee Council USA Advocacy Days on the Hill in Washington, DC.

Allison and Kendall are joined by more than 250 other advocates – former refugees, members of the community who believe in and support the resettlement program – speaking to our members of Congress.

This episode brings their voices and stories to you – why they believe in advocacy for refugees, and advice and encouragement to inspire you to engage in advocacy, too.
