Politics aside, helping refugees across the globe is an important task that cannot be abandoned.


With debate raging on over US policy on refugees originating in areas of the Middle East and Africa, there are ways these groups can be supported regardless of the laws that are in place.

Ways to help provide protection from the corruption, violence, and oppression many of these people live with every day.

Ways to begin the process of helping them rebuild and sustain infrastructure so that displacement is not necessary.

Ways to show recognition of their plight while also protecting that of our own.
There are many ways to show our support, and thats what being American is all about.
