Just over a year ago, Trump issued his first travel ban, blocking individuals from several Muslim-majority countries—and all refugees—from entering the country. Outraged, our communities came together and fought back against these bans in the streets and in the courts. Together, we blocked numerous attempts by the Trump Administration to keep refugees and Muslims out of our country.
But the fight isn't over. Now, one year later, the president has effectively dismantled the refugee resettlement program. In the midst of the global refugee crisis, the U.S. is on track to resettle a shameful 15,000 refugees this year - a dramatic cut from the 110,000 President Obama pledged in 2016.
This Thursday, February 8, join us from 6-7:30 PM at Casa Azafran for Where are the Refugees?, a conversation with TIRRC, American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC), Tennessee Office for Refugees (TOR), and the ACLU of Tennessee on the attacks against refugee, immigrant, and Muslim communities. Will you join us in our campaign rebuild support for refugee resettlement? RSVP on Facebook here.
