Survey on Migrant and Refugee Victims of Xenophobia and Intolerance in the Context of the Coronavirus Pandemic
The NGO Committee on Migration is requesting responses to a survey prepared by the Subcommittee on Xenophobia and Social Inclusion to assess the impact COVID-19 has had on the migrant population in relation to xenophobia and social exclusion.
The survey is available here in English, Spanish, and French. Please send it out as widely as possible through your networks. Responses must be received by January 31.
We are seeking replies from NGOs, academia, civil society institutions and United Nations entities in order to obtain as comprehensive data as possible on this essential grassroots work. Please consult the linked survey for an account of how we plan to use the data and publish the results.
Thank you for taking the time to respond. If you have any further questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Center for Migration Studies Survey Deadline Jan 29
The Center for Migration Studies (CMS) invites staff and volunteers of Catholic organizations, ministries, and programs that serve and work with immigrants and refugees in the United States to participate in a brief survey (10-15 minutes). The survey will help us better understand how public policies, crises, and more mundane challenges are affecting your work with immigrant communities. The survey seeks input on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, and immigration enforcement on Catholic institutions, as well as persistent operational challenges that preceded the pandemic.
Results will be published in aggregated form, and we will not identify any participating individuals or organizations.
Survey responses must be received by January 29, 2021. All participants who enter their name or their organization's name will be entered into a raffle for three (3) $100 Amazon gift cards. This information will be used solely to identify raffle winners.
Start survey here.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback! If you have any questions, please email email@example.com. Please feel free to share this survey widely with your Catholic networks.
