In 2015, our media, tvs, and smart phones were consumed with information about the refugee crisis occurring in Europe. Hundreds and thousands of refugees were arriving at European borders desperate for a chance to find safety for them and their families. News about the refugee crises was flooding our news channel and our nation watched and responded with questions like:
“What is a refugee?”
“What is the vetting process like?”
“Will my family be safe?”
We believe education is part of helping our neighbors, friends, and family understand the current refugee crisis.
