The Network would like to assist you and your agencies as you continue to support your communities in navigating the impact of the war in Ukraine. We are reaching out to you because our research suggests that your agency is located in one of the top 10 US cities with the largest populations of residents of Ukrainian origin. It is our expectation that the Biden administration will eventually move forward with plans to support family reunification and as such, those cities with the largest Ukrainian populations, may see the more significant number of arrivals.
To that end, we are interested in convening a call to discuss your agency’s readiness to support these expected new arrivals, to understand your current capacity, to help you to explore opportunities for partnership and more should your communities begin seeing large numbers of displaced Ukrainians.
Please feel free to send designated representative(s) from your agency as you feel appropriate. The call will be recorded for those not able to attend.
To help you to begin to think through these issues in advance, and for those who were not able to participate, we are sharing here a recording and the related slide from a webinar that NJHSA co-hosted on Tuesday, April 5th, specifically on the topic of “readiness”, along with our colleagues from JFNA and HIAS.
Should you have any questions in advance of the meeting on April 28, please feel free to reach out to Basha Silverman, VP, Strategy and Partnerships at the Network.
