URGENT! OREGON'S REFUGEES NEED YOUR HELP. The Oregon Legislature is considering House Bill 2508, also known as the Refugees Welcome Act.
HB 2508 would secure state funding for refugee and asylee services for the first time, offering extended case management to up to 1,800 refugees in Oregon. These services are critical to our refugee communities' ability to thrive.
We need your support and your actions! Please call your State Senator today and urge them to support refugee communities in Oregon.
"Hello My name is ______. As your constituent, I am urging you to support Oregon's refugee communities by passing HB 2508, the Welcome Refugees Bill."
Here's a video explainer from IRCO's Legal Services Manager, May Low, on why HB 2508 is so important for Oregon's refugees. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFD-stUWoWw&feature=youtu.be
