Welcome to the second edition of The Link! This newsletter was written by Friends, for Friends, in collaboration with the Refuge Association and the Coalition of Refuge Friends and Advocates (CORFA).

In this edition we focus on advocacy, a topic that creates confusion. Read how Friends are speaking up for their mission and in the process educating their lawmakers. The Friends of Tennessee share their advocacy efforts and accomplishments.

We want to hear from you! Take the short survey and let us know how we can be a valuable resource for you.

We hope that you enjoy The Link.
