Here in Georgia, our elected officials may need a little positive nudge to ensure our state remains welcoming to refugees, especially our Afghan allies who we promised to care for.


Whatever state you live in and regardless of politics, if you feel moved to do so, reach out to your elected officials to make your concerns heard.


Here's a sample script:

“My name is ______. I am a constituent from (City), (State) who supports Afghans seeking resettlement in the US and wants my state leaders to act now to aid those in need. In this rapidly evolving crisis, I ask that you do what you can to commit to protecting at-risk Afghans and remain a welcoming state to all who choose to live here. Thank you.”
