Meet with Congress to discuss Refugee Issues during Refugee Advocacy Week in June
Refugee Advocacy Week is June 2 through June 6 this year. (Christian Fuchs — Jesuit Refugee Service/USA)
(Washington, D.C.) May  13, 2014 — Refugee Advocacy Week is June 2 through June 6 this year. Your Senators and Representatives will be in their local offices this week, which is just before World Refugee Day on June 20. 

Please take this opportunity to meet with them to discuss important refugee policy and funding issues, introduce them to a refugee, or invite them to an event you're hosting for World Refugee Day.

Now is a good time to request these meetings. Sample invitations, meeting requests, and talking points on refugee legislation and funding can be found in the World Refugee Day Toolkit

Email Jesuit Refugee Service/USA Assistant Director for Policy Mary Small to let us know what you're doing around World Refugee Day so we can make sure that the D.C. offices of your Senators and Representatives know about the great work you're doing too!

Do you want even more information about how you can advocate for refugees? 

Along with our partner organizations in Refugee Council USA, we've created a new national listserv for people interested in advocating on refugee issues. You can sign up for this listserv by clicking here.
