Welcoming and protecting refugees is the mission of Refugee Council USA (RCUSA), a coalition of U.S.-based organizations. 

RCUSA achieves this by:

  • Enhancing the capacity, voice and effectiveness of individual member organizations to work on a mutually agreed upon common agenda of protection and welcome.
  • Advocating in the U.S. and around the world for the protection, welcome, rights and durable solutions for refugees and other populations who are forcibly displaced and at risk.
  • Building excellence in U.S. refugee resettlement and integration efforts through the collaboration of member agencies.
