Rights & Resources in Refugee Camps
The Center is hosting this informational event based on the Jesuit Refugee Service's refugee camp simulation module, "Walk a Mile in My Shoes."
There will be a number of stations representing access, and limitations, to basic human needs in camps, information about the scope of the forcible displacement phenomenon around the world, the US context, local groups representing refugees resettled in the greater Boston area, and opportunities for advocacy. The intent is to provide some basic background on this issue affecting tens of millions of people worldwide.
The simulation takes about 20 minutes to complete, so participants can stop by anytime between 6:00PM and 7:40PM to get started.
Thanks to all the organizations and BC student groups helping to make this event possible, including:
- Charity: water
- GlobeMed at Boston College
- BC Model UN
- Social Workers for Social Justice (through the School of Social Work)
- BC Real Food
