Show solidarity with vulnerable refugees

January 30, 2017 by Jeff Caruso

Tell the president and your members of Congress that America should continue to support refugees


Join our bishops in standing up for refugees who seek protection on American shores. See the response issued last weekend by USCCB Committee on Migration Chair Bishop Joe Vásquez to the President’s executive order. Take action in support of refugees here.

As Catholics, we believe in protecting the dignity of every human being, especially those in families ravaged by war.  In his statement, Bishop Vásquez said, “We will work vigorously to ensure that refugees are humanely welcomed in collaboration with Catholic Charities without sacrificing our security or our core values as Americans, and to ensure that families may be reunified with their loved ones.”

In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.
