First Presidency Releases Statement on Refugees

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued this statement on refugees following recent media inquiries:

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are deeply committed to living the two great commandments to love God and love our neighbor. We feel tremendous joy in helping all of God’s children, no matter where they may live in this world.

It is therefore with great concern and compassion that we observe the plight of more than 70 million people around the world who have fled their homes seeking relief from violence, war, or religious persecution.

We encourage Church members and friends to respond appropriately and legally, to help create welcoming communities by volunteering their time, talents and friendship to individuals and families who are integrating into our societies.

The Church has a special portion of their website dedicated to learning how you can serve refugees in your community.
