Refugees and immigrants are impacted by federal, state and local laws, policies and procedures every single day.

Advocate for Ukrainians

As of today, 2 million people have been forced to flee Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion.

Advocate for Afghan Refugees

The US government must waive fees and provide work authorization and public benefits to ALL refugees arriving from Afghanistan.

Haitians Also Need Our Help

Between the effects of climate change, ongoing political turmoil, floods, and earthquakes, Haitian refugees need our help. Learn more about how you can help Haitian refugees find security in the United States.
