Trump's Latest Attack on Refugees
March 06, 2017
BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
ORGANIZER: International Rescue Committee
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Friends and Family,
The continuing efforts by Donald Trump to block refugees from resettling in the United States are among the most shameful actions of this new administration. Refugees have fled war and violence in pursuit of safety. They deserve our welcome and support, and not his condemnation.
Like many of you, I woke up on Saturday, January 28 to news that refugees already approved to enter the U.S. had been detained at airports across the country. I joined the thousands of people who arrived at JFK to voice our opposition to this injustice and the racism that animates it.
Can you help me do more? The International Rescue Committee (IRC), founded by Albert Einstein in 1933, is one of the largest and most respected organizations assisting refugees around the world. While we protest, we need to ensure that organizations like the IRC have the resources they need.
On March 19, I will be running the New York City Half-marathon for Team Rescue. This means raising at least $1,500 to support the IRC. Please donate $250, $100, $50, or whatever you can afford to the IRC via this webpage.
Thank you for your support! Let me know if you have questions.
