The Syrian Community Network believes in working in coalitions with partner organizations to advocate for refugees, by urging lawmakers to welcome and speak out in support of refugee resettlement.
The U.S. has a long history of refugee protection and resettlement, which provides a safe haven to refugees and in turn makes our nation stronger through diversity. The U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) has successfully provided protection to more than three million people since the program’s formal establishment in 1980 with the passage of the Refugee Act. The United States resettles the most vulnerable refugees, including women and children, victims of torture, and religious minorities.
We believe in having a strong voice to speak up when the opportunity arises in support of our community. We have been to rallies at airports, in the streets, and outside the White House, and personally met with our lawmakers in Chicago, Atlanta, San Diego, Phoenix and nationally.
