Join us as We Act Together for refugees
iACT has launched WE ACT TOGETHER, an international campaign in support of hope and action for refugees worldwide. The goal of the campaign is to shed light on the refugee experience and inspire upstanders to take action that empowers and restores dignity to a population in peril.
Join the campaign by taking a pledge to act for refugees by uploading a photo of yourself to the campaign website. Each photo will unlock a donation toward providing meals to refugees in refugee camps. Then, visit our “Take Action” section to learn how you can make a difference in the lives of refugees.
Each week in April, check back to the campaign website to view new “iACT because” video statements from leaders, refugees, and humanitarian workers. They will be sharing why they act for refugees in order to inspire others to stand with refugees.
