Tips for using RRW
We have gradually been building our blog and wish to direct you to some useful pages.
On the Diversity page we have posted several articles that address this important immigration hot topic. We hope the articles will give you some ideas to get us all thinking ’outside the box’.
We are slowly building our Your State page so that you can begin your research much more quickly than we did. Sorry its taking awhile but this is an all volunteer effort.
You will notice we have a list of Categories where we have filed posts we have written so that you can more quickly get up to speed on certain topics. If you are researching the Refugee Resettlement program generally then you might be interested in the category entitled, “where to find information.”
Our Mission statement is clearly indicated on the right column.
The Refugee Resettlement Fact Sheet page was originally written as a handout for our elected officials and others not on line who wished to be informed. It is getting a bit outdated now but it is still useful.
Color coding in our posts:
* Red type will be used whenever Hagerstown, MD and Washington County are mentioned to help local readers quickly find local information
* Green type will be used when we want to encourage citizen grassroots action. Remember RRW is a community organizing blog. Although reading and learning are critical we want to encourage all of you to get involved.
* For readers who are most interested in the financial implications of refugee resettlement, we will put a lead in that says: Your tax dollars
