Advocating with Refugees

As one of the nation’s leading refugee resettlement organizations, LIRS draws upon decades of service expertise to inform our advocacy on behalf of people fleeing war and persecution. As advocates, we:

  • Call for policy changes that would better serve and protect refugees
  • Engage government stakeholders on policy issues
  • Focus public attention on the life-and-death challenges refugees face
  • Spotlight the blessings refugees bring to American communities
  • Stand with refugees as they find their voice and influence their own fate
