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 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.
