Dream Refugee is a 501c(3) non-profit whose mission is to address our society's most relevant and troubling themes of racism, xenophobia, and apathy by connecting refugees with their communities through the power of storytelling. This simple idea shows that enduring personal connections and awareness of culture and similarities are basic human needs that endear empathetic growth where it may not have been possible before.
Our vision is to deconstruct the negative stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding refugees and humanize them in a way that combats the hurtful rhetoric of our current political climate. Refugees are richly supported as they move from addressing basic human needs to achieving their dreams. The broader community is enriched by gaining an understanding around refugee experiences.
