A Journey Into Exile
February 15 @ 10:15 am - 3:00 pmFree
Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an organization that helps to serve, accompany and advocate for refugees around the world. In Canada, it has developed a role-playing exercise called “A Journey into Exile.” It’s an exercise that puts participants in the shoes of refugees to be able to understand a bit more of what millions of people in the world have to go through when violence and persecution hits one’s country.
In addition to this special activity, Journey into Exile, there will also be opportunities to exchange information on the world refugee situation. Are there any protections for them and are they effective? You will also have a chance to meet some former refugees, clients of the ANC, and hear their stories.
If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Fr. Earl Smith, SJ, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 709-754-0170.
