Airbnb, the world's leading hospitality company, has graciously partnered with resettlement agencies like the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to provide housing for 100,000 displaced people over the next five years.
Soft Landing Missoula is so excited for our first annual World Refugee Day Cup this Saturday! We couldn't have made such a wonderful event possible without the help of our sponsors.
We would like to give a warm thank you to Eric and Blair Sprunk for donating fifty kids soccer balls for our families and to Andrea Perez for the five game balls! The Whizpops and Dejebe deserve another special shout-out for providing the fun music during dinner. Dinner would not have been possible without the generosity of the White Bears - thank you for providing such a delicious meal!
Thanks again to our sponsors and our participants!
As we prepare for World Refugee Day, we are also taking action to help guarantee the future of the United States refugee resettlement program in the coming months. Join us, as we join groups across the nation, to express our support for this historic and important program that helps families fleeing war, terror, and persecution find a safe and welcoming home in Missoula, MT and all around the United States.
Each year, the US Government determines how many refugees are allowed to enter our country. To prevent this number from decreasing, call your Congressperson today to voice your support for refugee resettlement.
Call 1-855-472-8930 today to encourage our elected officials to increase the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the US today. There are instructions and and a suggested script for your call below.
1. Call 1-855-472-8930. When prompted, enter your 5-digit zip code.
2. Choose if you would like to speak with your Congressperson or Senator. You can also call back again and do both!
3. If you choose Congressperson, the recording says it is connecting to Ryan Zinke's office; however, it actually connects to Representative Gianforte's office.
4. Feel free to use this script to log your comment, either with a staff person or on the voicemail: "My name is [Your First and Last Name] and I am a constituent living in [Your City and State]. I support refugee resettlement and want to see more refugees resettled this year and next. I am calling to urge my Representative/Senator to express his/her support of the program to the President. Please let the President know that I support an increase in the number of refugees resettled in the U.S. and adequate funding for the resettlement program."
Thank you for taking the time to support the future of the United States Refugee Resettlement program and help families in turmoil find a safe and welcoming home.
