Letter to the Administration: Leaders' Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis

InterAction strongly supports and applauds the administration's initiative to host the Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis at the margins of the 71st United Nations General Assembly. Traditional resourcing has not been enough to meet the needs of more than 62 million refugees and IDPs who have been forced to flee their homes. Though the summit only includes commitments for refugees – approximately 21 million people – we fully endorse the three pillars that frame the expected commitments from member states: expanded humanitarian funding, expanded resettlement, and improved refugee inclusion and self-reliance – for all displaced, whether they have crossed an international border or not.
