"Faith becomes tangible when it finds its expression in love and especially, in the service of our brothers and sisters in difficulty." -Pope Francis
This week marks the 5th anniversary of Pope Francis’ papacy and the 7th year since the start of the war in Syria. It’s a time to call to mind his lived example of how our faith calls us to encounter and care for our neighbor most in need.
In this time of great need around the world, we can make a difference in the lives of those most vulnerable.
Call on Congress to provide support for migrants, refugees, internally displaced persons and asylum seekers overseas by funding poverty-reducing and life-saving foreign aid. Funding programs that address the root causes of migration, inequality and the lack of access to basic needs can help prevent future conflict and forced displacement, while promoting human dignity and building thriving and stable communities.
Here in the United States, we can support Dreamers, many of whom have lived in the U.S. their entire lives, and are in need a permanent legislative solution.
Now is an important time to raise your voice in support of those most vulnerable around the world. Lift your voice in support of refugees and migrants today!
