Take Action

Together, we can help refugees.

With more than 84 million people displaced worldwide, it can feel daunting to figure out how to help. At JRS/USA, we think that, no matter where you live there are ways that you can respond to today’s refugee crisis. Doing just one thing in your community, advocating on behalf of refugees, or giving just one gift can help refugees and migrants.


As an individual, you can take action to help refugees and displaced people. Your singular action to learn more or make your voice heard can have ripple effects on attitudes towards displaced people or policies with impacts on refugees’ lives.


There are many ways you can engage your community to help refugees - raising awareness, holding events, or starting a local group to spread the word. JRS/USA has resources that can help.


Creating awareness of refugee issues in local communities is central to JRS/USA’s mission. JRS and our partner organizations and institutions around the country hold local events, which are a great way to get involved in helping refugees.
