Call your representatives in the House and Senate and tell them that you oppose the ban on refugees. For more contact information and talking points from Jewish World Watch, fill out this form:

Call the White House (202-456-1111 or 202-456-1414) and tell President Trump that you oppose the refugee ban and believe that we need to be doing more—not less—to support refugees. After you make a call, please send an electronic message to the White House to let the Trump Administration know that these policies contradict American values and history.

Sign the #WithRefugees campaign petition to express solidarity with people forced to flee and encourage governments to take action.
