First please sign THIS PETITION if you have not done so already.
Please then take a moment this morning to call Senator Perdue about President Trump’s executive order slashing refugee admissions by more than half, halting all resettlement, indefinitely banning Syrian and other refugees, and prioritizing religious minorities over those most vulnerable.
Please call Senator Perdue’s office at (404) 865-0087 and state…..
Please ask the Senator to urge President Trump to reverse his executive order reducing refugee admissions into the U.S. and do everything in his power to ensure the U.S. and Georgia continues to welcome refugees.
If you need more…..Resettlement is a core American legacy that extends freedom and opportunity for refugees to rebuild their lives in safety and dignity. I support the resettlement of refugees into the U.S., into Georgia, and welcome refugees into my local community. I expect the Senator to support the openness to refugees this country was founded upon.
After calling (or if you do not call still send the email anyway) send an email to Senator Perdue here with the following (or a personal version of it) and the subject line “Support Refugees”:
I support refugee resettlement in the U.S. I am strongly opposed to the announcement from President Trump that slashed refugee admissions, brings all resettlement to a halt, stops resettling refugees from certain countries, and preferences religious minorities. This discrimination flies in the face of core American values and this country’s founding principles. It does not reflect the welcome for refugees I see in my community every day. Please urge President Trump to abandon this plan and do everything in your power to counter this dangerous executive order.
(Remember to change Your Name to your name.)
