Today's crises shouldn't threaten innocent children's futures
- Around the world, nearly 34,000 people flee their homes every day because of conflict.
- The crises that create refugees typically last 26 years.
- Of the 21.3 million refugees around the world, over half are children.
That means that millions of young people will spend their most formative years in refugee camps and programs.
How will they flourish without basics like education, stability, and access to jobs?
Stand with Refugees
This September, both the United Nations and President Obama will host summits about the refugee crisis with world leaders. Global goals include:
- Increasing humanitarian aid by 30 percent;
- Doubling the number of refugee resettlement and admission opportunities;
- Guaranteeing the right to work for one million more refugees;
- And ensuring access to education for one million more refugee children.
We can make sure they come up with more than just a temporary solution. Will you join us in calling on the United States to lead by example?
