Global Citizenship – Social Justice

We invite you to carry out this powerful Refugee Awareness Experience in your school!

Reflect and Experience what it might be like to Walk a Mile in a refugee’s shoes!

Today, more than 70 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, Educate Magis, on behalf of Jesuit Refugee Service/USA, invites you to host a Walk a Mile in My Shoes awareness experience.

New! Find out how you can make this experience a virtual one here.
