2.       Here is a link to a reflection on a recent experience of Posada at the South Texas Family Residential reported by Global Sisters Report on 12/6/16. http://globalsistersreport.org/column/justice-matters/migration/be-ready-offer-posada-outsiders-seeking-shelter-43731
 
3.       Call your Senators and Representatives: 1-866-940-2439  — Tell Them Your Community Welcomes Refugees   Please call the same number three times to be connected with your Representative and both of your Senators.
 
Here’s a sample: “I am a constituent from [CITY, STATE], and I urge you to welcome refugees and support the U.S. refugee resettlement program. Resettlement is a core American legacy that extends hospitality and offers a chance for refugees to rebuild their lives in safety and dignity. My community welcomes refugees and I urge you to reflect the best of our nation by supporting refugee resettlement in the United States.” Personalized it with your experience and its importance for you.
 
Thanks so much for your continued support in our Chapter’s advocacy efforts.
