This registerd student organization will utilize the resources we have available on campus at the University of Arkansas to partner with local NGOs in Northwest Arkansas. Our primary focus will be working to help students use their disciplines and/or degrees to aide in the refugee resettlement process through service learning. Additionally, students will gain cultural experience and help raise awareness about refugee crisis around the world.
While there are roughly 60 million people that are displaced around the world, there are 19 million that are reported refugees. Of that 19 million, about 100,000 have been completely been resettled to be self sufficient. There is a lot of work to be done and we need your help! If this is something that you hold close to your heart, let your voice be heard. Call, email, or write a letter to your congressional leaders and express your support for refugee resettlement.
I’ve listed below several things that you can do right NOW:
