Voice for Refuge endorses candidates in select local, state, and national electoral races who are refugees themselves or who are champions for refugee protection.
Voice for Refuge endorses candidates in select local, state, and national electoral races who are refugees themselves or who are champions for refugee protection. We choose to engage in electoral races based on a variety of factors, including impact, viability, and if and how refugee and immigration issues are being discussed by candidates. We base our endorsement decisions on candidate survey responses, voting records, public statements, accessibility to refugee communities, and proven solidarity with refugees.
For the 2022 midterms, priority attention has been given to candidates running for Federal or State office in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. We can’t endorse every refugee or pro-refugee candidate, so a lack of endorsement is not an indication that someone isn’t a champion for refugees. We encourage refugees and community supporters of refugees to recommend additional candidates and electoral races that we should be aware of. Candidates can also request endorsement by filling out our endorsement survey. To request that we look at a certain candidate or electoral race, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
COMING SOON: Check back for more endorsements as we get closer to November!
