“I’m an Episcopalian and your constituent from [City, State], and I support refugee resettlement in the U.S. I am strongly opposed to President Trump’s announcements to stop the resettlement of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen; pause the refugee resettlement program entirely; and reduce the number of refugees we welcome. This announcement does not reflect the welcome for refugees I see in my community every day. I support a program that protects our national security interests while continuing our nation’s admirable tradition of resettling the most vulnerable populations around the world. I urge you to do everything in your power to see this announcement reversed.”
Please also share a personal story about why refugee resettlement is important to you and your community. Let them know the specific ways that refugees contribute to and are welcomed into your community.
