Advocacy Action for the Month: Humanitarian Assistance for Syrian Refugees
January is a critical month for budget decisions for our nation’s leaders, as the President prepares to release his proposed FY17 budget in February, and Congress is also beginning to develop their FY17 appropriations packages. You can be a voice for refugees as these important funding decisions are being made.
Email the President and your representatives in Congress today and ask them to robustly fund humanitarian budget accounts that support refugees where they are – displaced from their homes and living without food, clothing, shelter or a means to earn a living.advocacy update
