Will you stand #WithRefugees?
1,557,252have pledged their support!
Each day war forces thousands of families to flee their homes.
People like you, people like me.
To escape the violence, they leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, believes that all refugees deserve to live in safety.
Add your name to the #WithRefugees petition to send a clear message to governments that they must act with solidarity and shared responsibility.
We stand together #WithRefugees.
Please stand with us.
The #WithRefugees Campaign petition was launched in 2016 as a platform for the public to express solidarity with people forced to flee and encourage governments to take action.
The petition asks governments to:
- Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
- Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
- Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.
There is an even greater need to promote tolerance and respect for people forced to flee. Today more than 100 universities, foundations, faith-based organizations, youth groups, UN Agencies, and NGOs are on board.
By bringing together a diverse coalition we can have more impact. This is a unique and historic opportunity to create a global movement behind the refugee cause.
Special thanks to ONE Campaign, who are supporting #WithRefugees through their petition for education for refugee children.
