But yesterday, a ray of hope came — after Iceland refused to take in more than a pitiful 50 refugees, one author asked her Facebook followers to offer to host a refugee family. A shocking 10,000 people responded opening the doors to their homes.
This is exactly how we rise to this moment in history. We say to our leaders, we reject your politics of xenophobia and we say to our brothers and sisters, Welcome Home.
We can lead our leaders, who are putting up fences and pulling up drawbridges. Show them our hearts and doors, all over the world, are open to those who need safe haven.
But the numbers need to be truly massive — to force EU governments to stop making excuses, we need every Avaaz member to sign and then share the pledge everywhere, on Facebook, Twitter, via email, wherever you can think — Sign the Welcome Home pledge and share it.
