This week, LSS’ Cristina Parcell and Ayad Shamsaldin sat down with News4Jax and First Coast News to discuss how the revised travel ban will affect local refugee resettlement efforts. Watch below!

The leadership team at LSS is working to understand the impacts this suspension will have on our organization and the refugees who are currently in the process of resettling in our community. LSS has facilitated this type of refugee resettlement for more than 35 years, helping thousands of innocent families escape religious discrimination, persecution, violence and injustice.

We hope to continue our mission of providing new beginnings for these individuals and families as we believe it is the very foundation of our country’s commitment to freedom and justice for people seeking a democratic way of life.
