International Refugees Find Community on Thanksgiving

Refugee Thanksgiving 1

Read this incredible story from Ozy on the very special Thanksgiving festivities of refugees living in the US. Some are from war-torn countries. Others have left exploitative work situations and gang violence. Everyone is relieved and grateful for the sense of community they’ve been able to find in the US, despite their disconnect from friends and loved ones in their home countries.

Happy Thanksgiving to our friends from here and abroad. As this moving piece mentions, our own President John F. Kennedy once said that we’re all a nation of immigrants. Let’s focus on community and the power of our diverse experiences as we move forward into an uncertain tomorrow.
