Call for Stories: Refugees, Families, and Communities Affected by Trump's Ban
On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order suspending the federal refugee resettlement program, barring the resettlement of refugees from Syria, calling for “extreme vetting,” halting refugee resettlement for 120 days and reducing the number of refugee admissions in fiscal year 2017 to 50,000, compared to 110,000, as planned by the Obama administration.

Please help us tell the stories of those affected by Trump's ban, including but not limited to:
- Refugees who were expecting or hoping to come to the U.S.
- U.S. residents who were expecting their family members to join them in the U.S.
- Congregations and communities who were expecting to welcome refugees (i.e. furnishing apartments, collecting donations, etc.)
- Businesses, schools, and other institutions that are affected by lower refugee admissions.
