Ask the President to Take Bold Leadership for Syrian Refugees
Stories and photos documenting the unspeakably tragic plight of Syrian refugees have shocked the world.
We cannot stand by idly and watch the largest humanitarian crisis of our generation unfold. Our country and the American Jewish community must step in now to provide protection and aid for Syrian refugees.
Secretary of State Kerry recently announced that the United States will take in 15,000 refugees above our normal refugee resettlement operations (85,000 in total in Fiscal Year 2016, 100,000 in 2017). This is a symbolic gesture—not a response to a crisis.
Please ask the President to resettle 100,000 Syrian refugees in the United States, to provide aid to the severely underfunded humanitarian efforts abroad, and to make resolution of the conflict in Syria a foreign policy priority.
Please sign and share our petition below, to raise the voice of American Jews in support of protections for Syrian refugees.
