Formerly named The Golden Door Coalition, we’ve advocated for refugee rights in Chicago and throughout Illinois for more than a decade. We are committed to creating welcoming communities that value refugees and empower them to lead fulfilling lives of safety and dignity.

Mission: Refugee Action Network is a statewide advocacy group supporting the inclusive integration of refugees in Illinois through public policy and community education. 


Our work focuses on:

  • Creating an inclusive network that uplifts the voices of refugees

  • Educating communities, civic leaders, and the media about refugees

  • Mobilizing individuals and organizations to advocate for refugees
