Please sign the UNHCR petition
Each day war forces thousands of families to flee their homes. People like you, people like me.
To escape the violence, they leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency believes that all refugees deserve to live in safety. Add your name to the #WithRefugees petition to send a clear message to governments that they must act with solidarity and shared responsibility.
The #WithRefugees petition will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit to address large movements of refugees and migrants, on September 19. The petition asks governments to:
•Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
•Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
•Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community. 620,596 have pledged their support! Sign the petition here
