GLOBAL CITIZEN

America was built by immigrants. Generations of people from all over the world seeking economic justice and freedom from want.

This great country has been a beacon for Global Citizens, and we want it to stay that way. For immigrants and refugees, no matter what you look like or where you come from.

Strong countries welcome the world. Weak ones hide behind travel bans and border walls. Now, more than ever, the world needs American leadership to solve its greatest challenges.

It’s time to show up and stand up for our values. It’s time to stand with immigrants and refugees. Join us in telling Washington and the world: #ThisIsAmerica.

Because they are who we are: we are all Global Citizens.

Join us in helping these great organizations in their vital work with refugees around the world.
