Refugees International (RI) advocates for lifesaving assistance and protection for displaced people and promotes solutions to displacement crises. It was started in 1979 as a citizens’ movement to protect Indochinese refugees. Since then, it has expanded to become a leading advocacy organization that provokes action from global leaders to resolve refugee crises. RI does not accept government or UN funding, allowing its advocacy to be fearless and independent. Its expert recommendations are highly valued by the very people whose decisions bring immediate relief and lifesaving solutions to refugees: senior officials of the US Administration and Congress, the United Nations, and governments around the world.
