  • We work to help the more than 70 million displaced people worldwide by engaging with the migration and refugee crisis in a variety of ways, including workshops, partnerships, and service-learning engagement.
  • We aim to understand and prevent genocide and mass atrocity crimes by partnering with the Center for Study of Genocide and Human Rights (CGHR) at Rutgers University.
