Join refugees and supporters for a faith-filled celebration of refugees' contributions to the US at 8AM on the steps of the US District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland.

January 8th is critical day when the court will hear oral arguments in the lawsuit brought by HIAS, CWS, and LIRS, represented by IRAP, against the administration's harmful and immoral Executive Order 13888 (EO) - which is designed to further dismantle refugee resettlement in our country. The EO allows states and localities to block resettlement in their communities by requiring them to provide written consent to continue welcoming refugees. This is yet another refugee ban - but this time, a state-by-state, city-by-city refugee ban.
