Join us today, World Refugee Day, to tell your Members of Congress to protect refugees. In recognition of the sacrifice, resilience and contributions of refugees, we must hold Congress and the administration accountable to welcoming people seeking safety.
Make your voice heard so that all Members of Congress hear loud and clear that their constituents care about refugees, asylum seekers, and all immigrants.
Sample Script: “I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN], and [as a person of faith] I urge you to protect refugees & asylum seekers. I call on you to:
Co-sponsor the GRACE Act (S.1088, H.R.2146), which would set a minimum refugee admissions goal at 95,000 (the historic average since 1980) and increase oversight over the administration through mandatory reporting requirements to Congress.
Co-sponsor the NO BAN Act (S.1123, H.R.2214), which would end the harmful refugee, Muslim, and asylum bans based on religious or nationality-based discrimination put in place by this administration and establish vital protections against future discriminatory bans.
For Representatives Only: Join the Bipartisan Congressional Refugee Caucus to restore the United State’s leadership role in refugee protection and resettlement by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. (Led by Reps. Lofgren (D-CA-19), Diaz-Balart (R-FL-25), Neguse (D-CO-2), and Chris Smith (R-NJ-4))
My community welcomes refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants, and I urge you to do the same.”
