Every Campus a Refuge Talk

Refugee Action is co-sponsoring Every Campus A Refuge, an initiative that calls on every college and university around the world to host one refugee family on their campus grounds and to assist them in resettlement. It is a movement that encourages institutions to partner with local resettlement agencies to carry out their own refugee initiative. Dr. Diya Abdo, a professor of English and Creative Writing started this initiative at Guilford College and it has quickly spread to several colleges and universities. During this time of deep Islamophobia, xenophobia and racism, there is no better moment for campuses to intervene directly and materially in the discourse around refugees — to transform the narrative from one of fear to fact. Come join us and hear Dr. Diya Abdo speak about how we as community can take part of this movement.
