Amnesty International Webinar: The Global Refugee Crisis

Wednesday, January 20 at 6 pm

If you can’t make it to the Potluck Plus, you might be interested in the following.  You can participate from anywhere you have a wi-fi connection.

Dear Community Congregational members and friends,

2015 has seen the worst refugee crisis since World War II, with over 19.5 million refugees across the globe. Yet, instead of open arms for refugees desperately seeking shelter, we have seen an increase in anti-refugee rhetoric in the United States coupled with Islamophobia. This hate and fear-mongering has no place in our country—we must speak out for human rights!

Amnesty is calling for a dramatic shift in the way the international community deals with the global refugee crisis in 2016.

Register Now, join in the webinar on Wednesday, January 20th at 6:00PM (PST) and learn how you can ensure that our country is one is which human rights are upheld and refugees are welcome.

This webinar will outline the global refugee crisis and what you can do to call for changes—both at the national and local level. You can make a real and direct difference in the lives of refugees.

Sincerely,

Tarah Demant
