On September 15, 2016 USCRI joined Refugee Council USA in Washington, DC at a press conference to deliver 10,000 post cards to call for bold leadership in face of refugee crisis and upcoming summits. The post cards messages were that Congress and the President encourage to increase the number of refugees resettled in the U.S. as well as the resources needed to do it. The 10,000 post cards were hand delivered to senators and representatives following the press conference. Statements were issued by Representatives Bill Pascrell (CA-51) and Juan Vargas (NJ-09).
On September 19th USCRI will also be in New York City, as an invited guest to the U.N. General Assembly’s Summit “Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants”.
