    “Please come join us for our first Arizona Welcomes Refugees Signmaking Party next Wednesday night. We have two Iraqi refugee families coming to Tucson Airport later in the week, and we’d like to get 20 people to commit to coming out to welcome them with signs and love. If you want to be there, please join us Wednesday night for a briefing on their arrival time and have fun making signs to honor their new life in our state. We will meet in McBride Hall at GSP.”
