Refugees International

Refugees International advocates for lifesaving assistance and protection for displaced people and promotes solutions to displacement crises. As the leading advocacy organization on refugee crises, RI successfully challenges policy makers and aid agencies to improve the lives of displaced people around the world and increase stability before conflict spreads. RI declines government or UN funding, allowing its advocacy to be fearless and independent. Their field-based knowledge of humanitarian emergencies and expert recommendations are sought out by global leaders whose decisions bring immediate relief to refugees and solutions to large-scale crises. Due to RI’s efforts, refugees receive food, medicine and education; displaced people return home; peacekeepers protect the displaced from harm; and stateless people obtain legal status.
