Advocacy Day at Senator Blunt’s Office 4/3/18:
Pictured with Ailey Pope, community liaison for Senator Blunt, are Sisters Carol Boschert, Paulette Weindel, Rosemary Russell and Partner in Mission Susan Buerkle.  These Bold Action Committee members asked Senator Blunt to hold the administration accountable to resettling at least 45,000 refugees in FY18 and to set a goal of a least 75,000 for FY19.  The unprecedented high number of refugees in our world today calls us to open our hearts and arms to assisting a greater number of our sister and brother refugees.   They also advocated a fully funded census in 2020 without the question about citizenship.”
