Statement on the Crisis
The Academy for Human Rights stands with the people of Ukraine as they fight against continued Russian aggression. We denounce this inhumane invasion and the effort to undermine a democratically-elected government. The Academy urges the United States and other countries to welcome refugees from Ukraine and other conflict-affected regions. The Academy encourages all of us to lend support however we can to the people of Ukraine.
If you are in the United States - contact your local officials and call for the US to raise the refugee cap to allow Ukrainians (along with other victims of conflict, such as Afghans) to resettle in the US.
