 Will you stand #WithRefugees?

1,479,382 have 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 #WithRefugees petition was delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit to address large movements of refugees and migrants, on September 16. At the meeting, 193 UN member states adopted the New York Declaration and committed to take shared responsibility to find solutions to large movements of refugees. We want those commitments to become reality in September 2018 when a Global Compact for Refugees will be on the table. Therefore, the #WithRefugees Campaign and petition will continue until 2018 to mobilize public support.

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.
