Erik Laucks started this petition to Northampton County Council

My name is Erik Laucks and I'm a senior at Lafayette College. I'm part of a student organization called Refugee Action that works with Bethany Christian Services in Allentown to host refugee families in Easton. We are currently sponsoring our third family, but we also provide support to many others. Due to a recently implemented Executive Order, state and local governments are now required to provide explicit written consent for refugee resettlement to continue in their communities, and a lack of such consent will prohibit new families from being resettled in those areas. Governor Wolf has already consented on behalf of PA, so now we need to get approval from the Northampton County Council. Their next meeting is this Thursday, the 9th, at 6:30pm at the Council Meeting Room on the 3rd floor of the County Courthouse at 669 Washington St in Easton. We're working to get a group together to attend and show their support for the continuation of a decades-long history of resettlement in Northampton County. Please attend if you can and please sign this petition to show the County Council that the people of Northampton County support this initiative!
