1) Increase funding to humanitarian appeals and international organizations.
2) Admit more refugees through resettlement or other legal pathways.
3) Increase refugees’ self-reliance and inclusion through opportunities for education and legal work.
Leaders from Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico, and Sweden will also participate on the event.
