Today, more than 65 million people are displaced around the world. The International Rescue Committee in Tucson invites you to participate in the “Walk a Mile in a Refugee’s Shoes” simulation event. In partnership with the Jewish Community Center, this event will provide the community an insight to the lives of refugees around the world who were forced to flee their homes through a simulation exercise.
While it is impossible to fully comprehend what it is like to be forced from your home and live as a refugee, Walk a Mile in a Refugee’s Shoes is an opportunity to begin to understand what it might be like.
As part of this simulation, attendees will go through various stations and assume the role of a refugee and focus on the challenges that they face in getting the bare necessities of life—food, water, shelter, and education.
Additional information and resources will be available the day of the event.
Registration starts at 9:30AM. Suggested donation of $10.00 at the door.
