About the Campaign

Did you know that Albert Einstein was a refugee? And so was the founder of Google? And the owner of that restaurant you love? Resettled refugees have contributed their skills, strengths, and ideas to help make America stronger.

Refugee Council USA (RCUSA), a coalition of 24 U.S.-based non-governmental organizations, is dedicated to refugee protection, welcome, and excellence in the U.S. refugee resettlement program.

RCUSA urges Congress to fund refugee programs at levels that reflect the reality that the world is currently experiencing the worst refugee crisis since World War II. The last thing that the United States should do during a time of historic refugee crises is to cut lifesaving refugee budget accounts.

What We Fight For

How We Will Win

Adequate Levels of Federal Funding

RCUSA is requesting that at least 75,000 refugees be resettled in FY18, and believes that the Administration’s budget proposal that would support the resettlement of 50,000 is inadequate and an abdication of U.S. leadership. RCUSA is advocating for a continuance of FY17 funding levels, and therefore recommends funding of $1.688 billion.

The President’s budget proposes a 31% cut to refugee services that help refugees achieve long-term integration and economic success and assist communities and local partners in welcoming new Americans.

Call members of Congress to tell them you support adequate funding of resources for refugees: (202) 224-3121

Write your member of Congress:
