Ask your representative to cosponsor the GRACE Act today
In the midst of a historic worldwide refugee crisis, the Trump Administration has committed to resettling only 18,000 refugees in 2020 — the lowest number in U.S. history.
This historically low commitment to welcoming refugees is out of touch with the American public. Public opinion polls continue to indicate that levels of support for welcoming refugees are among the highest they have ever been.
The U.S. has had a long, proud tradition of offering people fleeing war and crisis a new start. We also know that refugee resettlement is more than a humanitarian lifeline: Welcoming newcomers is also good for our country and economy.
We can make sure the United States welcomes refugees no matter who is president. The GRACE Act will uphold America's long bi-partisan tradition by establishing an annual refugee admissions level of no less than 95,000, restoring refugee admissions to their historic norms.

Dear [Congressional Representative],
As your constituent, I urge you to support the GRACE Act, which establishes a minimum number of refugees who will be resettled in the U.S. each year in keeping with historic norms.

I strongly believe we need to uphold America's legacy of welcoming refugees, and I hope you do as well. Thank you.
