Coalition for Our Immigrant Neighbors appreciates and enjoys various groups of volunteers!
From attorneys, who help immigrants and refugees understand their legal rights and documents, to law students, who shadow attorneys to learn more about immigration law, to interpreters, who help clients and attorneys, to general volunteers, who do the tasks that are crucial to successful workshops and clinics
You, too, can become involved with COIN and help to improve the lives of our immigrant neighbors.
Walk a Mile in a Refugee's Shoes is a simulation created to expose people to the lives of refugees in refugee camps in the first person narrative. Each attendee receives information regarding the details of a refugee's life and is expected to play the role of that refugee. Ultimately, the goal is to illustrate the challenges and hopelessness that many refugees experience in real life. Although many of us cannot truly share in those experiences, the first step in helping our immigrant neighbors is becoming aware of their struggles.
For us, Walk a Mile in a Refugee's Shoes is that first step.
Volunteer with the many organizations that make COIN strong!
Help COIN to continue to serve our immigrant and refugee neighbors in Central Indiana!
