Walk a Mile in a Refugee's Shoes

The JCC of Indianapolis in conjunction with the Coalition for our Immigrant Neighbors (COIN) invite you to Walk a Mile in a Refugee's Shoes. 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.
