Abstract

This booklet dives into the fragmented refugee outreach environment in Arizona. It first identifies the main reasons why government outreach towards refugee communities are lower than the national average: a general mistrust in government institutions, and a strong language barrier that creates a lack of awareness and isolation. Through multiple independent- partnerships, interviews, and literary reviews, this group produced materials in order to bridge the gap in communication between government and refugee communities. Specifically, a targeted video and outreach program that identified the critical stakeholders in Arizona's refugee outreach environment. These deliverables were done in order to recommend a way to strengthen the bonds and networks between stakeholders.
