Seeing images of dead children washing ashore is devastating and has convinced me that we need to do something to help Syrian refugees.
I think we're all disturbed by the danger people are undertaking on their journeys to Europe, and the number of deaths we have witnessed is heartbreaking.
Germany is accepting 800,000 refugees, while we are only accepting in the few thousands.1 We have the wealth to do it, so let's do it!
Click here to add your name to the petition: Join me in calling for our government to show leadership and kindness by accepting more refugees from Syria.
MoveOn members like us have already contributed over $200,000 to directly support Syrian refugee families. But we can't stop there. Let's speak out together, too.
Thanks for your help.
