Everyone has the right to seek asylum and be protected from war, violence and persecution. But for many people in many parts of the world, this right is under threat. This December we have a chance to advocate for change as world leaders gather at the Global Refugee Forum in Switzerland. Show your solidarity by joining USA for UNHCR and urging world leaders to uphold their legal and moral obligations to all people forced to flee their homes.
Too often, refugees face social, economic or cultural barriers to restarting their lives in a new community. The most effective way to support resettled families and refugees is to welcome them with open arms and ensuring they can apply for jobs, enroll in school and access social services, like housing and healthcare. Join USA for UNHCR and give refugees more hope — and more opportunities — while they are away from home.
