How can you feel like a refugee?
While the need to address the refugee, a crisis is at an all-time high, unfortunately so is the level of anti-refugee rhetoric and misinformation about refugees. Yet, they are ordinary people like you and me, who have lost everything. They’ve left their entire lives behind, often with just the clothes on their backs. They come here to start over. They want to make sure their kids can go to school. They want to work, and they want to contribute to our communities. Just like us, they seek a life of dignity, freedom, and security.
One refugee says: Just try to close your eyes and imagine you wake up in the forest without your parents and friends. you can't do anything, all your life behind you has gone.
