Tell Congress to Welcome Syrian Refugees

Tell Congress to Welcome Syrian Refugees

The U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) both invite individuals to call U.S. Senators and Representatives without charge at 1.866.961.4293 urging them to WELCOME Syrian refugees and oppose H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015 that closes the door to Syrian refugees.

“As women religious, as citizens of the United States, we choose to stand for life and hope. We will not give in to fear. We will not allow others to divide us by race or creed or nationality and we will not turn our back on our Syrian sisters and brothers in their hour of greatest need.”

LCWR statement, November 2015
