Tell Your Representatives: Don't Cut Lifesaving Aid for Syrian Refugees
This petition had 37,617 supporters
Right now, the House of Representatives and the Senate are making decisions on how much money will be spent on foreign aid in the coming year – including lifesaving humanitarian assistance programs for Syrian refugees and some of the world's most vulnerable populations.
More people around the world are displaced by conflict now than at any other time in the last 18 years — including nearly 7 million affected by Syria's ongoing civil war. But despite that, the House of Representatives proposes slashing 40% from last year’s spending for internally displaced people and 29% for refugees.
Fight for Syrian refugees — tell your Representative to save humanitarian aid.
