Cone together for fairer rights to asylum
All across the globe, people are being forced to leave their homes in search of somewhere safer. In fact, 68.5 million people have been driven away due to the devastating effects of climate change, poverty, violence and war. That’s more than at any other point in history.
What can we do about it?
Wherever we come from, we all want the same, simple things. A safe place to call home, happiness and peace for our families.
At Ben & Jerry’s, we don’t have all the answers, but we think we know how to begin. People seeking asylum and refugee status are our neighbours, friends and family. And when someone in our community needs us, we all pitch in, we all… cone together.
There are things we can all do. Together, we can ensure safety and security for some of the most vulnerable people in the world.
Will you stand with us? Let’s start by pushing for greater international co-operation, building connections and melting barriers, so that all people seeking asylum are treated fairly and with compassion.
