The USCCB/MRS is one of nine NGOs in the United States that resettles refugees and advocates for the refugee community.

The toolkit includes prayers for migrants and refugees, commonly asked questions about refugees, sample social media posts to be shared on World Refugee Day, and community engagement ideas to participate in advocacy efforts.
