JRS/USA’s 2019 Advocacy Day
04 April 2019 at 8:30am
Please Join us for JRS/USA’s 2019 Advocacy Day, set to take place on Thursday, April 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Washington, D.C. This event is a wonderful opportunity to take an active role in speaking out on behalf of refugees, both around the world and here in the U.S. JRS/USA staff will schedule meetings with your members of Congress to encourage the U.S. to welcome refugees within our own borders and support robust funding for refugee programs, including refugee education.
The day will kick-off with a breakfast briefing followed by meetings on Capitol Hill. JRS/USA will prepare materials on all of the policy issues to be discussed and will also host a webinar a week before the Advocacy Day to review the issues in detail, discuss logistics and answer any questions. For a sense of what the event entails, please read a wrap-up of our 2018 Advocacy Day.
The day will also be followed by a reception 5pm-7pm. Details to come.

Deadline to RSVP is Friday, March 22.
