Ahmad studied accountancy in Damascus. Now he wants to do a master in Economy and work for the Big Four. Incluusion showed him how the Dutch educational system worked and how it differed from Syria. He told us that there is way more interaction between students and teacher in the Netherlands, while in Syria the students just listen and make the exams. #inclusion#utrechtuniversity#refugeeswelcome#education

La fois où on a levé $12,126.62 au restaurant Orange Rouge et où le president de La Croix Rouge canadienne, M. Conrad Sauvé est venu d’Ottawa pour nous expliquer comment cet argent servirait à accueillir les 20,000 réfugiés que le Canada avait accepté. 💙
Nous rendons ça facile pour les gens de faire du bien depuis 2015!
Our 2nd EAT+do good raised $12,126.62 for the Canadian Red Cross to welcome the 20k refugees that Canada agreed to take in 2015. Conrad Sauvé, president of the Red Cross traveled from Ottawa to be with us, and this was the awesome team from Orange Rouge restaurant, who made it possible. 💙
We make it easy for people to do good, and you did.
Dear Boston and Philadelphia friends - We are honored to be presenting our multimedia exhibit, "The Power of Faces: Looking at the Global Refugee Crisis" at Amnesty International USA's Annual Northeast Conference on Saturday, Oct. 27 in Boston and Annual Mid-Atlantic Conference on Sat., Nov. 3 in Philadelphia.
If you are in either region, we strongly encourage you to attend these important conferences where you'll meet other advocates and individuals who want to make a positive difference. Links for both Amnesty International Conferences are below. Leave a comment if you are interested in attending, or just to lend your support of Amnesty International's important work.
How do you address the Global Refugee Crisis? For us, we start one face at a time.
The United Nations calls the Global Refugee Crisis "the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time”. Over 68.5 million people have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict or persecution. That’s 1 person every 2 seconds.
Every. Two. Seconds.
The Power of Faces portrait project intentionally crops out the context of refugee camps to focus on individuals, and not merely their label as “refugee”. We are also bringing photo printers into refugee camps because we believe having a physical photo of family or friends can be a great comfort in times of need. To date we have distributed thousands of portraits for people to keep.
Online registration for Boston ends tomorrow night, and you can register on-site at the event as well.

We are enraged! We are furious! We are fed up!
A young black man was stopped and searched near Görlitzer Park AGAIN.
An asylum seeker burned to death in a police cell AGAIN,
it was claimed they set themself on fire AGAIN.
A young black man was kicked to the ground by police at Kottbusser Tor AGAIN,
it was claimed that he had injured police officers, although video evidence proves otherwise:
Police brutality resuled in another broken arm of another black man AGAIN.
The police denied any misconduct AGAIN,
any investigations were abandoned AGAIN,
and nothing happened AGAIN.
A young woman was verbally racially abused, degraded, and physically mishandled by the police AGAIN.
A police officer was exposed to have Nazi friends, and in all probability be a Nazi himself, AGAIN.
Görli was raided AGAIN, with the pretext of “combating drug related crimes”, when the actual intent was to keep the gears of the deportation machine turning.
Victims of racial abuse have been falsely charged AGAIN,
continuing to reinforce the impunity of the police.
We are enraged! We are furious! We are fed up! And why aren't you?
😯 SCHON WIEDER: Erneut melden marokkanische Medien, dass die marokkanisch-königliche Marine ein mutmaßliches Boot mit Geflüchteten mittels gezieltem Beschuss gestoppt hat. Mindestens eine Person wurde verletzt und alle sind auf das marokkanische Festland zurückgebracht und verhaftet worden. Damit erfüllt die marokkanisch-königliche Marine letztlich Forderungen aus Europa – nämlich verstärkt gegen Geflüchtete vorzugehen.
Bringe unsere Forderung auf die Straße:
NICHT IN UNSEREM NAMEN! DIESE PRAXIS MUSS AUFHÖREN! KEIN WAFFENGEBRAUCH AN DEN GRENZEN!

PALABR_ (diploma project)
This project is a reflection about graphic design in the current migration crisis and its role in the communication problems in reception centres when several populations, several cultures, several languages meet. How to invite people to talk together and exchange despite language barriers? How can graphic design release a word that, even if it is not mastered, can be used?
Led in partnership with LahSo, a reception centre in Lyon, it is thanks to co-design and participative design, and through various workshops with migrants and social workers that were created different graphic tools to stimulate dialogue, to support discussions on a specific subject — to help migrants to tell who they are as a person. In this project are played out questions of language, but also of consideration and welcome.
Nurjan arrived in Nice, France, after having crossed Europe by foot with her dad. They survived the war, survived a sinking in the Mediterranean, survived the tireless fury of the police and military in Europe. They thought they would find refuge in France. Yet France left them on the streets, denying children and asylum seekers’ rights. We citizens are tired of trying to repair the dramatic disengagement of the state. When hundreds of thousands euros are spent everyday to track « migrants », to observe and intimidate us, to destroy camps and to impede humanitarian action, hundreds of families rot on sidewalks all over the country. Nurju and her dad Simo finally arrived in Belgium, where they found (non-governmental) housing and legal accompaniment.
There are many ways to act, join the struggle ! .
