Every Campus a Refuge [VIDEO]

Jan 11, 2018

Every Campus a Refuge was founded in 2015 as a response to Pope Francis' call on every parish to host one refugee family. We are a non-profit program that provides best practices on how colleges and universities around the globe can become a refuge by following our process of hosting refugees on campus grounds and assisting them in resettlement. At Guilford College, where the initiative was born, we temporarily host refugees in a permanent residence dedicated to ECAR. Guilford has thus far hosted 32 refugees, 18 of them children.

ECAR recently attended the Together Summit at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. This video was made, in part, for that trip.
