This April, Repair the World is teaming up with HIAS, the country’s oldest refugee resettlement agency (it was originally founded in 1881 to assist Jews fleeing pogroms in Eastern Europe) for a campaign focused on the current global refugee crisis.
In the lead up to Passover – a holiday that recalls a time when our ancestors wandered in search of a new home – #SupportforRefugees will share the stories of refugees around the world, and offer opportunities to get involved.
We will also be highlighting awesome organizations like Project Hive, which shine a light on the nearly 60 million people around the world who have had to flee their homes because of violence or persecution. Project Hive is changing the way that Americans talk and think about refugees, encouraging them to learn about people’s experiences as refugees, and unlock the potential of US to support and advocate for them.
Join Project Hive, Repair the World, and HIAS all April long for ways that you can make a difference!
