Join the Tweet Storm TODAY – Lift your voice in support of refugees and asylum seekers!

The Administration’s attacks on refugees and asylum seekers have grave, long term consequences — threatening the very survival of tens of thousands in our global community and reneging on U.S. commitments and responsibility to be a welcoming nation for those in need of safety. Trump has already taken steps to decimate access to asylum, has slashed the U.S. refugee resettlement program — and is now reportedly considering ZERO refugees for resettlement next year!

Rise for Refuge has called for actions around the country tomorrow, August 3, to rally opposition to these outrageous decisions and proposals. Click here to locate actions near you, and join NNIRR throughout the day in a Tweet Storm to lift up our messages for rights and justice for refugees and asylum seekers.

  • The U.S. is a welcoming country. Banning refugees and asylum seekers is inhumane.
  • Shutting down the refugee resettlement program is an assault on our humanity.
  • Don’t be fooled: The U.S. can help families at the border AND resettle refugees. We have the commitment, the compassion, the responsibility
  • We should not give up our humanity. We must not slam the door on those seeking safety.
