LoveArabic's Co-Founder and Chief Culture Guide, Waleed Nassar, speaks with WelcomeHome.to:

“Although we live in Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world, and have free and uncensored access to information, people still find themselves surrounded by information bubbles and filters that are created by the area we live in, the websites that we visit or the news channels that we follow.

We believe that the best way to effectively burst these bubbles, that shape... our perceptions of others in our community, is by bringing people together. By uniting people of different cultures it provides an opportunity to learn something new about our neighbors, and allows people to create direct connections.”

"Having left a resettlement agency’s fold, the refugees no longer had access to interpreters, employment training and English classes. Many couldn’t afford the security deposit to rent an apartment.

Help came from across the religious spectrum. The Islamic Cultural Center began paying deposits and utility bills. Wesley United Methodist Church distributed vouchers for its thrift store. Jim Call, a member of the Mormon community, collected donations to buy dining sets and TVs. Congregants from Temple Beth Israel also stepped up." —Miriam Jordan in The New York Times | #Fresno #California

Once in the United States, the new arrivals sometimes land in towns that are not exactly prepared for them.

From The Washington Post: "The Supreme Court’s action on Wednesday had two parts. In one, the justices said they will not disturb the lower court’s decision that expanded the definition of close family ties.

But in another, the justices granted the government’s request to put on hold a part of the lower court’s order that would have made it easier for more refugees to enter the country. That order could have granted entry to about 24,000 refugees who were already working with resettlement agencies."

The short order from the court means the administration must continue to accept those with grandparents, aunts and uncles and other relatives in the United States.

Thanks to Welcoming America for this video. I'm reminded of what our co-producer, Mustafa Rony Zeno, said at the end of his podcast conversation with author Rob Bell:

“Please reach out to the local refugees wherever you live. There are refugees everywhere. There are immigrants everywhere. It’s really difficult to be living in a country, in a world, that you did not grow up in. Please reach out to people, get to know them, understand who they are, and, you know, maybe use you...r own privilege of really being of the system and helping them out. I think it really — a little bit of time and a good ear really, really goes a long way.”
