Readings from Dying to Live – Stories from Refugees on the Road to Freedom
15 December 2020
Dying to Live: Stories from Refugees on the Road to Freedom tells the stories of people who have been forced to flee their homes in their own words. For Jesuit Refugee Service’s 40th Anniversary, some famous faces and friends of JRS read some of these stories. Bringing light to the refugee experience is critical to dispelling fear and creating a culture of welcome for all refugees and migrants. We encourage you to listen to the stories and come to know the stories of those who are forced to flee their homes.
