ON THE MOVE
Co-Sponsored project by JRS/USA and JRS/Canada
Get ON THE MOVE if you want to know first-hand:
- What leads a person to leave their home, family and friends
- What happens to them along the way, the different situations they face and all the complications of seeking refuge in a camp or claiming asylum in a new country
- What comes next as they integrate into their new communities
ON THE MOVE puts us in motion towards those who are searching for a future in which there is security, peace, opportunities.
ON THE MOVE mobilizes us to be fraternal citizens who want to move in solidarity with refugees and migrants around the world.
Invite your community to get ON THE MOVE through our available activities:
Walk A Mile in My Shoes

A Journey Into Exile

As a refugee, you will make various group and individual decisions, hear refugee testimonies, and watch videos about their journeys, challenges, and resilience.
