We are kindred...
The Human Family. This month, we practice remembrance of this truth, learn and recollect the stories of our brothers, sisters, aunties and uncles who reside on every corner of our globe, most especially the displaced. We declare that we see you, child whose homeland can no longer be home, who lives on the run or in the limbo of refugee camps. We hear you, mother who weeps for the dreams she fears will never come true. We join you in solidarity of voice and story, reminded that your story is part of our own.
Less than 1% of the world's refugees are given the opportunity to resettle in nations like the U.S., and we believe it is our responsibility and joy to welcome, befriend and walk alongside of them. It is our vision that every refugee resettled in the U.S. will have the opportunity to thrive, and will one day be able to change the story of the 99% who still live in perilous conditions of refugee camps, ravages of war, slavery and poverty. One life at a time.
