This Saturday, June 20, is World Refugee Day 2020. Refugees around the world are facing tremendous challenges due to the spread of the pandemic and the increasing unwillingness of countries to host them, including the United States.
We join our interfaith partners in calling on Congress to take several key steps to strengthen U.S. support for refugees, including raising the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. annually – which is currently at a historic low—and financially supporting refugee communities during the pandemic.
We know that refugees contribute greatly to U.S. communities and that welcoming refugees is one way we can live out the biblical call to "welcome the stranger."
Tell Congress today: Strengthen U.S. support for refugees!
Please forward this on to friends or family who you think might be willing to help.
Please share with any friends or family you think would like to take this action as well.
