More than 60 million individuals have been forced from their homes around the world, among them nearly 20 million refugees. Across the globe, already limited resources—both public and private—are now stretched thinner than ever. In this environment, many organizations and funders are reconsidering old practices, searching for holistic models, and innovating to address the unprecedented needs and opportunities of displaced persons. Many seek to empower refugees and develop programs that not only holistically address needs, but are also refugee-led. In the United States, where needs range from middle-class, college-educated Syrian refugees to impoverished Central American women and children seeking asylum out of fear of gangs, diverse approaches are needed. This call, held in honor of World Refugee Day, will explore several innovative models during this era of the global refugee crisis. Join us to hear from leading figures in the field about the potential and lessons learned of their approaches.
