Welcome refugees: Ask President Obama to lead the way

Now is the time to welcome refugees!

On Monday, September 19, world leaders will meet at the U.N. Summit for Refugees and Migrants. And the next day, President Obama will host a Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis

Send a letter to President Obama.

Click HERE to ask President Obama to lead by example at the summits: 

  • Promote solidarity and shared responsibility among the nations at the summits;
  • Increase the number of refugees the United States resettles in 2017;
  • Protect, not deport, Central American children and families fleeing violence.
