Share the Presiding Bishop's World Refugee Day Message

"In 1938 The Episcopal Church published this poster with the depiction of Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus, and it read, 'In the name of these refugees,' referring to Mary, Joseph and Jesus, 'Aid all refugees.' The United Nations is now asking the peoples of the Earth, of all religious stripes and types, to once again come to the aid of those who are refugees." -The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, 2016

Each year on June 20, the international community comes together to celebrate the resilience, courage, and contributions of refugees around the world. On this World Refugee Day, share the Presiding Bishop's message with your elected officials.

Today, there is a global refugee crisis of staggering proportions with over 60 million refugees, asylum seekers, and internally displaced people around the world. Of that number, nearly 20 million are refugees, and less than 1% of those refugees will ever be resettled. The U.S. refugee resettlement program is a life-saving alternative, providing peace and safety to refugees who have had to leave their homes to due to violence and persecution.

The Episcopal Church, through Episcopal Migration Ministries, resettles more than 5,000 refugees from countries such as Burma, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Syria each year. Episcopal Migration Ministries works with over 30 affiliates and Episcopal dioceses and congregations across the country to provide essential support as refugees build new lives here in the U.S. Once in the U.S., refugees become valuable members of our communities as entrepreneurs, students, friends, and much more. It is critical that Episcopalians speak out in support of the U.S.'s historic commitment to refugee resettlement.
