Tracy's blog

I’m Tracy Au and I have graduated from the Professional Writing program from university. I am an aspiring screenwriter, so this blog is used to promote my writing and attract people who will hire me to write for your TV show or movie. I write a lot about writing, TV, movies, jokes, and my daily life and opinions. I have another blog promoting my TV project at www.thevertexfighter.blogspot.com.

Anti-refugee rhetoric is escalating: Stand against the aggression

Anti-refugee rhetoric is escalating: Stand against the aggression

Dear Tracy,

Anti-refugee rhetoric is escalating - and we're counting on people of conscience like you to stand up against it and ensure the U.S. says "no" to discrimination.

Fear mongering and hatred have no place in debates on how to keep the country safe. But right now, we are up against a din of powerful voices who are stigmatizing Syrian refugees and advocating for discrimination against them - people who have fled their homes in an effort to save their lives.

Amnesty is working to fight against escalating threats to bar Syrian refugees from finding safe haven here in the United States. Please make an urgent donation to help. For a short time, it will be matched dollar for dollar.

We have a long history helping refugees. And we have been working on the front lines of the Syria crisis since it erupted over four years ago.
  • Our crisis investigators have gone into Syria to research human rights atrocities and have released reports that have garnered widespread media coverage calling attention to the severity of the conflict.

  • Our researchers have been working in Greece, Hungary and Jordan documenting treatment of refugees and inspecting detention centers.

  • Our advocacy team has been lobbying governments - including those of the U.K., Canada and U.S. - to agree to take in more refugees.

  • Our media team is helping combat the refugee and Muslim bashing that has dominated national and international headlines this past month.

Please support this work.

Unlike many other organizations, we don't accept funding from governments for our research or work campaigning for human rights. That would only jeopardize our credibility and undermine the pressure we can apply.

This is a multi-faceted effort. But we must rise to the challenge.

With your support, we can do just that.
