Kids’ Voice, as a partner agency of the Coalition for Our Immigrant Neighbors (COIN) presents:

Walk a Mile in a Refugee’s Shoes
with the JCC and other COIN agencies

COIN Agencies: Immigrant Welcome Center, Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Catholic Charities, Kent Newton, Esq., Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic, Indiana Legal Services, LaPlaza

This event is an hour-long simulation that allows participants to assume the identity and role of a refugee. Through the simulation you will be given the opportunity to learn what experiences a refugee is faced with once forced to flee their country. You will encounter seven stations meant to mimic the process a refugee would enounter. We hope that you walk away from this experience enlightented on refugee reality and what steps you can take to advocate or get in involved.
