TELL TRUDEAU: WE STAND WITH PEOPLE FORCED TO FLEE
Donald Trump is unleashing policies that are sexist and islamaphobic. His Executive Order on refugees slams the door shut on thousands of people forced to flee their homes. Canada needs to distance itself from this kind of intolerance and stand up for women and men whose rights are at risk.
If we tell our government to increase our resettlement numbers right now, we can make sure that thousands of refugees are safe from harm.
Tweets are not enough. Prime Minister Trudeau must immediately condemn this Executive Order, demand that it be rescinded, and resettle even more refugees to Canada.
Our government has shown that they will stand up for the rights of women and refugees around the world. And so have Canadians. Thousands joined the women’s marches across our country. Thousands more have welcomed Syrians into our communities. Now is not the time to back down.
We need to say no to sexism and fear-driven intolerance. We need to stand proudly for the rights of women and refugees. We need to build bridges, not walls.
