Add your name: Vermont Stands Up Against Hate and Welcomes Syrian Refugees

As President-elect Trump threatens to ban Syrian refugees, we in Vermont are trying to welcome them. In the face of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria, on November 28, 2016 the Burlington City Council overwhelming passed a resolution supporting refugee resettlement. This resolution follows the lead of Rutland City, which already agreed to open its doors to 100 families earlier this year. We agree with US Senator Bernie Sanders’ statement that when hundreds of thousands of people have lost everything and are merely trying to protect and preserve a future for their families, we should not turn our backs on them.
