At this moment, 65.6 million people have been forcibly displaced from their homes, as a result of war, violence, and persecution. Of the 22.5 million now classified as refugees, many are still seeking a place to call home — a safe community where they can begin to rebuild their lives and heal from all they’ve been through.

Surprised? We were, too. You can help by telling Congress to support refugee resettlement in the US. Sign the petition below today!
