Protecting the Rights of Refugees and Asylum Seekers: Women’s Refugee Commission’s Recommendations to the Biden Administration

As an organization focused on the rights of refugee women, children, and youth, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) urges the Biden administration to take immediate steps in its first 100 days to re-establish US leadership on humanitarian and human rights issues.

With record levels of people displaced by conflict and crises, the majority of whom are women and children, the Biden administration must move quickly to restore the rights of those seeking asylum in the United States. And the new administration must work intensively to protect the human rights of refugees globally, expand support for gender equality in humanitarian action, and promote access to humanitarian services for all those in need, including sexual and reproductive health care.

View an overview of WRC’s recommendations to advance this humanitarian and human rights agenda.
