CMS and RCUSA conducted a series of national listening sessions bringing together resettled refugees, resettlement workers, and community and government partners, followed by an extensive survey of resettlement program stakeholders, to gain guidance and direction on how to build a better program. The result was a first-of-its-kind report detailing what was working in the resettlement program, the internal and external challenges it faced, and how the program could be reformed. RCUSA and CMS co-hosted a panel discussion on the eve of the inauguration to encourage President Biden to tap the expertise of refugees and other community stakeholders in strengthening this crucial program.
