Join Us for a Webinar on Syrian Refugees

Over the last two years we've watched two dramatic mass migrations and humanitarian crisis with the Central American Refugees fleeing endemic and targeted violence and Syrian Refugees facing civil war and political persecution.

Join us on October 19th at 4 PM ET on a Webinar to learn more about how you can advocate for the U.S. to increase the amount of Syrian refugees we resettle and defend our resettlement policies from those who are discriminating against Muslims or trying to decrease the cap on refugees resettled.

At the same time we will also focus on the crisis for Central American refugees who have fled still rampant state and organized criminal violence. The violence has continued or gotten worse, yet it is harder for children and families to reach the U.S. Likewise, due process challenges and detention has eroded asylum protections for Central American children and families escaping extreme violence. Find out more how you can help advocate for the Central American refugees on this webinar.
