Dear Houston advocates, this is a time-sensitive situation:

We need your support to help a group of Iranian refugees who were expecting to be reunited with their families in San Antonio, but are now being held in Vienna and face imminent deportation back to Iran. The refugees are part of a persecuted religious minority who were in the process of being resettled.

The U.S. government recently sent denial notices to the refugees, and the Austrian government has followed suit with deportation notices. We are extremely concerned that these families will face imprisonment and torture if they are returned to Iran.


Please support these refugees and their loved ones in Texas by adding your name to a letter urging members of Congress from Central Texas to act. You can sign as an individual here or as an organization here.

Please add your name by Friday, March 2.
