Buy a shirt to tell refugees and immigrants they are Welcome

We want to share the message Welcome #ThisIsYourHomeToo with all refugees and immigrants.

You can too, by purchasing a shirt from our Welcoming Campaign.

Shirts and tanks cost $24. Kids shirts are also available for $15.

World Refugee Day is June 20th

Send a visual message of welcome to refugees and immigrants. Many refugees and immigrants feel unwelcome in our country. Our goal is to have US-born individuals across the country wearing these shirts out so that newcomers can read, in their native language, messages of welcome. For newcomers to know there are so many who are grateful to have them as part of their communities. Refugees and immigrants: Welcome #ThisIsYourHomeToo!

Shirts are available in eight languages

From some of the languages most commonly spoken by newcomers in the United States:
Arabic | Farsi (Persian) | French | Karen | Nepali | Spanish | Swahili | Vietnamese

In the near future, we hope to add more languages and an option to find the most common languages spoken in your area.

This current series comes in perfect time for Welcoming Week.

Proceeds support the Refugee Center Online

There are more refugees in the world today than at anytime since World War II. The Refugee Center Online is a non-profit that uses the power of the internet to help refugees and displaced individuals build new lives in the United States. Our web platform offers free online courses, helps newcomers find resources & local services, and provides community support.

Refugees and immigrants make our communities a better place.

If you want to read more about how the lives of US-born Americans have been touched by refugees, asylees, and immigrants, we encourage you to read our collection of World Refugee Stories. From soldiers to politicians, employers to students, social workers to business people – everyday Americans tell their stories to celebrate the goodness and the courage of the refugees, asylees, and immigrants who make the United States a better place.

Inspiration for this project

This project was inspired by a local project started by Andrew Arehart in Nashville, Tennessee. Andrew held a booth at a local library where he had citizens wear Welcome shirts. For the past several years, RCO’s outreach materials have focused on welcoming newcomers in their own languages. This year, some of our Refugee Technology and Advisory Council members suggested we do a tshirt project to welcome newcomers in their languages and we immediately thought of Andrew’s original project. With thanks and acknowledgement to Andrew.

Student loans

We want to share the message Welcome #ThisIsYourHomeToo with all refugees and immigrants.

Some students pay for college with loans, either from the government or private loans. To apply for a loan from the government, you have to complete the FAFSA, which is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. When you apply for loans from the government, you have to repay them with interest. This means you borrow money from the government and have to return it with extra money added. Private loans can sometimes have very high interest rates. Before you decide to take student loans, you should talk to a school counselor or someone who can help you and make sure you understand the loans.

Shirts va tanklar qiymati $24. Bolalar futbolka ham mavjud $15.

This is the official government website for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. For many students, this is the first place they look when paying for college. Students from low-income families can receive grants or scholarships to help them pay for school. Completing the FAFSA is very complicated and confusing for American families as well as refugee families.

Part-time work

Some students pay for college by going to school part-time and working part-time. Sometimes, schools will give students grants that allow them to work on campus and get paid from Federal Work Study funds. You can also find a part-time job that has flexible hours so that you can attend college. However, it can be very hard to go to college while you are working, especially if you have a family. When thinking about paying for college, think about this option after applying for scholarships and through FAFSA.

From some of the languages most commonly spoken by newcomers in the United States:

Scholarships

Arab | fors (Persian) | Frantsiya | Karen | Nepali | Ispaniya | Swahili | Vetnam


In the near future, we hope to add more languages and an option to find the most common languages spoken in your area.

The Refugee Center Online has a list of scholarships for refugees and immigrants. However, you can apply for any scholarships from your college, from local organizations, and from the state.
