Don’t turn away refugees!

Right now more than 68.5 million people across the world are displaced, having fled their homes due to war and civil strife. Throughout its history, the United States has been a proud leader in welcoming refugees, and providing safe harbor to those in need is core to the American spirit. But today, the number of refugees allowed into the U.S. is lower than it has been in a generation, and the Trump administration is looking to cut that number even further.

It couldn’t be more critical to welcome families seeking refuge in the U.S. with compassion and open arms and never turn our backs on those in need. Add your name to our petition now to stand up for our values and tell the Trump administration: Don’t turn away refugees!

Take action

My Message

Dear President Trump,

As your constituent, I ask you to support refugees through actions and programs that demonstrate U.S. values and global leadership. Conflicts around the world continue to drive families from their homes, often across borders and into new countries where they must wait to return home or try and start a new life. Around the world, we hear great stories of resilience from refugees -- women, men and children who have suffered greatly and yet continue to work towards making the world a better, more peaceful, and more prosperous place for all.

The United States has a long legacy of supporting refugees, both at home and abroad. The displacement crisis we face today is one of the most urgent and most difficult crises we have ever faced — over 68 million people around the world have been forced to flee their homes. To end this suffering will require great leadership and resolve. But, we have demonstrated this leadership and resolve in the past.

I ask you — as my elected representative — to do your part and support refugees both at home and abroad.

Sincerely,
