It’s not too late -- we still need your help to alleviate the worst humanitarian crisis in the Middle East in 60 years. Tell your Members of Congress to support legislation protecting and assisting millions of displaced Iraqis. To increase the impact, we’re going to hand-deliver every single letter to Congress tomorrow, June 22nd. That means today is your last day to take action!
Remember: 2 million Iraqi refugees have fled to Jordan, Syria, and neighboring states, and approximately 2 million Iraqis have been internally displaced within Iraq itself. That's 4 million Iraqis who have been forced out of their homes as a result of the U.S. invasion and ongoing sectarian violence.
These people have suffered enough. Do something about it now.
Besides being a humanitarian tragedy, the displacement of Iraqis is having a destabilizing effect on the region. Host countries just can’t handle the floods of refugees, and internally displaced persons may be recruited by al Qaeda and other terrorist cells looking to exploit their anger and frustration.
Your letters make a huge difference in pressing our policymakers to step forward and protect Iraqi refugees and internally displaced persons. We have 1,500 collected so far, but we need far more. So please, take two minutes to personalize our pre-written letter to Congress, and maybe pass the link along to a few friends.
It’s the least we can do.
