Mission: The Utah Refugee Coalition is a membership organization of refugee communities created to connect its membership to partnering organizations, government agencies, volunteers, and resources while educating the general public about refugees.
Since 1975, our nation has committed to welcoming and assisting individuals who have experienced persecution and suffering. This commitment is deep and abiding and goes to the very core of our values as seen in the inscription on the base of our Statue of Liberty:
Give me your tired, your poor;
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
