Issues That Matter:
Tell the Administration to Welcome Refugees in 2021
Now is the time for federal, state, and local elected leaders to take a stand and urge the President to welcome refugees in the coming fiscal year. We need you to reach out to your Members of Congress, governor, mayor, city council members, and state legislators to and speak out in support of welcoming refugees! Download the LIRS Welcoming Refugee 2021 Toolkit to find out how you can take immediate action!
While we are grateful for measures Congress has taken to address the pandemic, refugees face unique challenges that were not taken into consideration in previous legislation. We urge Senators, especially, to take up the next COVID-19 package and include meaningful solutions that support all our neighbors, including refugee community members.
Let your representative know your support of the Refugee Protection Act, a blueprint for restoring our reputation as the humanitarian leader of the world.
