Urge Your Representative to Reauthorize the Lautenberg Amendment

The Lautenberg Amendment, which helps persecuted religious minorities fleeing Iran and the former Soviet Union, expired on June 1, 2011. The provision must be renewed each year. A failure to reauthorize the Amendment would make it difficult for the U.S. to protect Christian, Jewish, Baha’i, and other religious minorities fleeing Iran and could end family reunification for Jews and Evangelicals in the Former Soviet Union with relatives in the U.S.
