This is Home: Exploring the New American Experience

Share

The objective of this project is to humanize the complex dynamics and causes of forced displacement with a specific focus on Syrian refugees. The event will be organized on February 20th on the World Day of Social Justice and will consist of a screening of "This is Home: A Refugee Story" (2018) an award-winning documentary film following the journey of four Syrian refugee families resettling in the United States and the challenges they faced in adapting to western culture. The screening will then be followed by a panel discussion, which will include a Syrian refugee, an academic professional actively studying these populations and dynamics, and a service provider that aids newly arrived refugee families.
