Counter Chinese Government Political Influence Operations: Cosponsor HR 1811

The Chinese government and Communist Party’s global influence operations and disinformation campaigns are increasingly a threat to U.S. interests and those of our allies.  These efforts are extensive and not well understood, often
employing press manipulation, economic coercion, targeted investments, the infiltration of nongovernmental organizations, and academic censorship to coerce and corrupt United States institutions or individuals and shape a world antithetical to U.S. values
and interests.  Such efforts are often called “sharp power” operations.

Support Refugee-Related Accounts in FY20 Appropriations

We invite you to join us in supporting refugee-related accounts for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 appropriations submissions. As you may know, 60 million people are displaced around the world, the largest number since World War II. Historically, the United States
has recognized its moral and legal imperative to lead by example in addressing global issues such as refugee resettlement. That is why our nation is the largest resettlement country in the world, taking in almost 70 percent of all refugees resettled by the
UNHCR globally last year. In order to meet the needs of refugee assistance and resettlement programs, we must ensure that adequate funding is provided to local communities to help refugees integrate and thrive.

We are asking that the respective appropriations subcommittees substantially increase funds to meet the needs for the following refugee-related accounts:

Help Protect Communities From Violence

Every person in America should feel safe and secure when they leave their home. They should be able to attend concerts, school, nightclubs, movies, and places of worship without the fear of violence. They should be able to go about their daily lives without
wondering whether or not they will be the next target of a mass casualty event. Unfortunately, this reality exists in our country. Over the last several years, communities across the country have endured too many unspeakable acts of violence in places once
thought to be safe.
