Every minute, 20 people around the world are forced to flee their homes. They leave behind their communities, their possessions, and often, their families. They are driven out by war, violence, persecution, strife, hunger and poverty.
More than 65 million migrants worldwide are seeking refuge, and the safety, opportunities and chance at survival it brings. Many of them are children and teens who have never known freedom or life outside a war zone. Each one has a story of courage and resilience.
The Kean University Human Rights Institute’s 11th Annual Conference, Seeking Refuge: Immigration and Forced Migration Around the World, on Friday, March 23, at 8 a.m., will shed light on this critical global issue that requires urgent attention and challenges us - the peoples and nations of the world - to develop a compassionate and coordinated response.
