Dear Governor [name of your governor],
I commend your commitment to continue to provide sanctuary for Syrian refugees in our state. Thank you for staying true to our values and rejecting the politics of fear.
As Americans, it is our responsibility to provide for those in need, especially displaced peoples, who are overwhelmingly underserved and disproportionately victims of violence. These communities have long been embedded into the fabric of this country, and have contributed to the success of our nation in innumerable ways. I—along with the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), and its Campaign to TAKE ON HATE—appreciate your recognition of their value to our communities.
Thank you for your part in promoting unity and a welcoming environment for all.
