#justiceOPportunity Thursday—March 4, 2021

It’s #justiceOPportunity Thursday and we need your help to make sure that President Biden immediately increases the FY21 refugee admissions goal and restores regional allocations based on vulnerability.

The Biden administration is expected to take executive action to increase refugee arrivals and begin restoring the resettlement program any day. This is particularly welcome news, in light of strong support for America as a beacon of hope, safety, and refuge—and the previous administration’s dismantling of the program by more than 80%. The Biden administration has already proposed and met with Congress to discuss, increasing the refugee admissions goal for this year to 62,500 to meet the unprecedented and ever-evolving refugee crisis. Now, it is vital that President Biden sign the revised refugee admissions goal for FY21 as soon as possible. Each day that passes without this signed executive action is another day that hundreds of particularly vulnerable refugees are forced to wait to be resettled.

Urge the Biden administration TODAY to immediately restore U.S. moral leadership in refugee protection and resettlement. Here’s how you can take action:
