Take Action for Asylum Seekers in WA
Washington State needs to support asylum seekers as they search for safety and community. Specifically, here in Washington, hundreds of migrants and asylee-seekers have arrived at the Riverton Park United Methodist Church seeking food, shelter, and support over the past year while experiencing brutal weather, cramped living conditions, and waiting for any resettlement assistance.
WA must act to provide support for our newly arrived asylum seekers and refugees. Our Legislature has an opportunity to create a $25 million fund with the state Office of Refugee and Immigrant and Refugee Affairs within the Dept. of Social and Human Services. Will you send some pressure to our lawmakers urging them to fund these critical services for our new neighbors?
