Now more than ever, we need to stand
Join the 1,534,539 who 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 all refugees deserve to live in safety.
Add your name to the #WithRefugees petition to send a clear message to decision makers that they must act with solidarity and shared responsibility.
We stand together #WithRefugees.
Please stand with us.
The petition asks decision makers 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 support their families.
The campaign continues until a global compact for refugees is adopted in 2018.
What is the Global Compact
In 2018 world leaders will come to the UN to agree on a more just way of managing the global refugee crisis. This agreement, called The Global Compact for Refugees is all about sharing responsibility; where all parts of society stand together #WithRefugees and do their fair share instead of leaving individual states to bear the burden of mass forced displacement.
Our campaign will continue until the Global Compact is adopted.
