The International Community
Advocacy Statement to International Students & Scholars
On behalf of the diaspora community ARCI extend the warmest of welcome to new and returning international students in U.S. We know that the past few years have seen disruption, confusion, and animosity toward members of our community, our friends and neighbors in The International community. This is not what ARCI represents neither does majority of Americans. U.S is enriched each day by your expertise, your voices, and your cultures. This country could not be what it is without you. As you begin your new academic year, we confirm our commitment to you by providing support and updated resources designed to help you navigate challenges you may face on a practical and personal level. Please know that we are your staunch advocates. In affirming our support, we also encourage you to stand up and speak out for yourselves. The International Community cannot succeed unless you succeed. Reach out to us at any time, and please accept our thanks for letting us stand in solidarity with you.
With all best wishes,
