The State of Florida has a long, successful history in resettling refugees and re-uniting Cuban and Haitian families.
But this year some in Tallahassee are questioning the value of the state continuing its partnership in the federal program. Elected officials deserve to hear from Floridians who support welcoming refugees and others with protected status.
That's why the nine resettlement agencies in the state, the faith community, and immigration advocates have come together in the Floridians Standing with Refugees. We want to tell the great story of faith and patriotism that is refugee resettlement.
Please add your name to Floridians Standing With Refugees by signing the civic support statement or the faith support statement found below. We'll share your statement with the appropriate state officials.
