On Sunday, June 24, in honor of World Refugee Day, we sent these postcards (below) to our representatives in Washington D.C., to urge them to (1) hold the US Administration accountable to resettlement of 45,000 refugees; (2) urge DHS to prioritize the reunification of refugee family members; and (3) reinvent a refugee resettlement goal of 75,000 refugees for FY2019.  The text of the postcards was provided by Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
