DONATE TO THE CAUSE

Episcopal Migration Ministries, in partnership with a network of affiliate agencies, dioceses, churches, and volunteers, is today one of only nine national agencies through which all refugees enter the United States. To date, Episcopal Migration Ministries has helped more than 80,000 persons resettle and thrive in this land.

Now our ability to continue this life-saving work is in danger.

Refugee Policies Under Fire

U.S. policy concerning refugees is under executive review. The current administration has stated an intention to temporarily suspend the refugee resettlement program and reduce the total number of refugees who will be allowed into the country this year by more than half. These are drastic departures from the U.S.’ historic role as a leader in the humanitarian work of refugee resettlement. Furthermore, these proposed policies will severely inhibit the ability of the Episcopal Church and other faith communities to live into our call to serve and welcome the least of these.

Policy Effects

While these changes in policy face ongoing legal challenges, Episcopal Migration Ministries and our partners are already feeling the effects: tens of thousands of refugees already vetted and approved for admission to the U.S. have been left in harm’s way, budgets have been reduced and professionals with decades of experience let go. Alarmingly, our ability to ensure that our newest neighbors feel welcomed and safe has been compromised.

We need your help to ensure refugees are welcomed to a place of safety and opportunity.
