Refugee Stories

This week we will be sharing The Crossing, which is an immersive video series hosted by Susan Sarandon on the refugee crisis.

If you have not already, please take some time to connect with these stories. We hope that you have found the refugee stories about some of the real people behind the big data to be meaningful.

The Crossing

The Crossing is an immersive video series hosted by Susan Sarandon on the refugee crisis that is playing out in Greece. The website features Susan's video diaries and blog posts about her experiences interacting with refugees in Lesbos, Greece.

If you have any articles or videos that you find to be particularly moving or inspiring, you can continue to share them with the rest of our group in the Refugees Resources Discussion in Canvas.
