Welcome Refugees in Chicago

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Do not allow Governor Rauner's fearmongering to impact Chicago. Pledge to maintain a welcoming city and stay open to refugees from Syria and anywhere people are fleeing for safety.

Why is this important?

Chicago is better than the fear and anti-refugee platform Illinois' governor is taking.

We will not close the door in the face of people seeking safety no matter what Gov. Rauner says.

Welcoming refugees fleeing from violence is the best response to violence, and Mayor Emanuel has the responsibility of distinguishing our city policy from the governor's declaration.


Reasons for signing

  • Refugees Welcome
  • Chicago welcoming and giving spirit should not change based on elected politicians.
  • Mean spirited in so many ways
