From the Chair of our Candidate Support Committee, Uyen Nguyen:

I'll be speaking, as a refugee and a Sister on the Planet Ambassador for Oxfam at the Women's March convention in Detroit this weekend to bring awareness to refugee crisis. Currently, more than 65 million people around the world have been forced to leave their homes because of violence, persecution and war. This represents 1 in every 113 people on the planet, a number unprecedented in recorded human history.

Want to help our cause but only have 10 seconds? Text to 97779 and write "refugee" in the message, and you'll get a petition we hope that you'll sign. The purpose of the petition is to urge president Trump and Congress to not slam the door on refugees and to admit, at the very least, 75,000 of the world’s most vulnerable refugees. The US has the resources to help. Please add your kindness and voice to this ongoing crisis by signing the petition.

And do let me know if you'll be at the Convention so we can meet up!
