This policy note is a response to the Global Compact on Refugees agreed to at the UN General Assembly in New York. The note was done in interfaith partnership with Catholic Relief Service, Islamic Relief, and Act Alliance.

As organizations rooted in our diverse faith backgrounds, we applaud efforts to place a spotlight on refugee important issues and call on all decision-makers to remember the individuals, families and communities that are counting on real change so that they can plan for a better future.
