The United States resettled just over 22,000 refugees in FY 2018, down from 90,000 in FY 2016.

Refugees, immigrants, and other migrants are important to our community. Locally, this decrease in resettlement meant we only welcomed just over 200 families in 2018, half of the more than 400 families we welcomed in 2016. We must tell our elected officials and other community members why new and diverse populations are important to Utica, the Mohawk Valley, and all of Upstate New York.

We need you to tell our story and support our mission. Take Action Now.
