Refugees in Our Homes: From Crisis to Community

Refugees in Our Homes: From Crisis to Community

If we are to bring about peace and healing for the people who deserve it, we need to change the conversation and understand how we play a very important role in doing so. We need to renegotiate how the refugee “crisis” is discussed in our media and how it plays out in the political arena.

As a former Program Development Director for The Tiyya Foundation, a non-profit in Orange County dedicated to providing basic necessities and educational opportunities to refugees, I know firsthand that the journey for a refugee begins, not ends, with resettlement.
