Congolese Integration Network

The Pulse of the Community

A Black man speaks to an audience in a community setting

Health advocacy and education is integral to the Congolese Integration Network (CIN)’s mission to welcome Congolese immigrants and refugees into their new communities in Seattle, Washington. As part of its health outreach programming, CIN has turned to church and other community leaders to share accurate and updated information about COVID vaccines. Hearing from these trusted sources has had an immediate impact, drawing more community members to attend CIN’s numerous health fairs that have included vaccination resources and clinics. At one COVID vaccination event in March 2022, a member of one partner organization praised CIN on the robust turnout: “To me it's obvious you have the pulse of the community. It’s impossible to bring such a large group if you don't already have the connection and the trust and the relationship with the community.”
