Raising Awareness

Raising public awareness of displacement crises, and the opportunities to support refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) rebuild their lives is key to MFA’s mission. We keep our faith-based and secular network informed about the situation on the ground and how they can get involved in our initiatives.


On Capitol Hill, MFA advocates for informed, inclusive approaches to policies that impact the lives and livelihoods of displaced communities, including refugee resettlement, humanitarian intervention, counterterrorism, and anti-normalization. MFA’s comprehensive materials, maps, and reports serve to bridge information gaps that arise from the sluggish or limited responses of federal agencies. When urgent bipartisan briefings, media engagements, or responses to unfolding political crises are necessary on Capitol Hill, we can provide timely and comprehensive information. 

Add your voice to ours.

MFA encourages individuals and organizations to support our life-saving work. From college groups and congregations to foundations and corporations, MFA has built a dynamic community of advocates dedicated to helping displaced people and refugees whose lives have been disrupted by war.
