Reaffirms: (1) the bipartisan commitment of the United States to promote the safety, health, and well-being of refugees; and (2) the goals of World Refugee Day.
Recognizes those who have risked their lives to provide life-saving assistance and to help protect people displaced by conflict.
Calls upon the U.S. government to:
- uphold its international leadership role in responding to displacement crises with humanitarian assistance for, and protection of, the most vulnerable populations;
- work in partnership with the international community to find solutions to existing conflicts and to prevent new conflicts;
- continue to support the efforts of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and to advance the work of nongovernmental organizations to protect refugees regardless of their country of origin or religious beliefs; and
- continue to mitigate, through humanitarian and development support, the burden placed on frontline refugee host countries that absorb the majority of the world's refugees.
