Syrian Refugee Crisis Seminar Information

February 1, 2017

The Syrian Refugee Crisis Seminar I held on January 30, 2017, was an encouraging reminder that while those in power try to divide us, we stand together to defend our shared rights and values.

I know that many of you want to know how you can reach out to the organizations that presented, and how you can help refugees coming to America. Please follow the links below to learn more about the organizations that presented, and learn how you can directly get involved.

RefugeeOne. RefugeeOne is the largest refugee resettlement agency in Illinois. This is a great organization to reach out to if you are interested in hosting a refugee family or serving as a mentor to newly arrived refugees.

Syrian Community Network. The Syrian Community Network (SCN) was established by a diverse team of community members with intentions to aid and to assist in easing the resettlement of Syrian refugees. This is another great organization to contact if you are interested in hosting a refugee family or helping them transition to life in America.

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The ACLU is leading the legal challenges to President Trump’s executive orders. The ACLU is on the frontline of the fight to defend the rights guaranteed to every person in the U.S. Constitution.

In these turbulent political times, it’s more important than ever that we stand together. We must stand for the values that unite us, and not fall for the rhetoric of division and hate.
