JRS/USA Refugee Simulation: Walk a Mile in My Shoes

01 September 2018|Action Toolkits

Today, more than 68 million people are displaced around the world, the most since World War II. While it is impossible to fully comprehend what it is like to be forced from your home and live as a refugee, Jesuit Refugee Service/USA invites you to host a Walk a Mile in My Shoes simulation.

This community engagement event provides individuals and communities with an opportunity to pause and experience, if only vicariously and for a few moments, the frustrations, disappointments and hopes that refugees around the world face. Gather your family, friends, classmates, or fellow parishioners and see what it might be like to Walk a Mile in a refugee’s shoes.
