Join the campaign to make refugees welcome

Seeking a safe place to live is a human right. As you read this, over 22 million people have been forced to do just that flee their countries to escape war and persecution to find safety.

But instead of protecting refugees, most of the world’s richest countries are slamming their doors shut. History will judge us by how we tackled the worst humanitarian crisis of our time.

Every one of us can do something. We can use our voices to call on our governments to take a fair and proper share of responsibility for this catastrophic global crisis.
