The refugee who are escaping war and political persecution deserve a safe refuge in the states. ARISE is a nonprofit working to build a thriving immigrant community based on equality and justice. ARISE hopes to work with any organizations or individuals to help reduce the misunderstanding created by this political rhetoric, and expects your support to effectively integrate this vulnerable population into their communities and help them achieve their full potential.
