Abdul: this man is the embodiment of every quality we proudly regard as typifying what is means to be #australian... #resilience #drive indomitable #workethic and #indefatigable #spirit.... yet, after 10 years waiting, hundreds of hours #volunteering, demonstrating almost impossible positivity and gratitude to this country he so desperately wishes to call #home, still Abdul is denied the one thing he wants, the one luxury most of us take utterly for granted: to be embraced as an Australian citizen. This equates to a life with no Medicare, no #support, unable to work or, without assistance from the ASRC even put #food on the table. Yet he achieves more each day than many of us will achieve in a year. Why? Because rather than #giveup or #givein Abdul chooses to #giveback ...his is #thestorybesideyou and it is the Abdul’s of this work who wield the potential to make this nation truly great. See him, hear him, open your eyes, your hearts, your arms...sign the #pledge welcoming #refugees and those #seeking asylum to our shores. Let us be a country that focuses on what unites us, not divides us. Let’s make an Australia we are all proud to call #home ❤️ ... #seekingasylumisahumanright #istandwithrefugees link in the bio @asrc1 @asrc_foodbank @asrc_catering #allnationscricket
This fab trio from Melbourne Uni spent the day in our Community Meals kitchen yesterday with our corporate volunteering program. Corporate volunteering is a great way to engage your staff in a worthy cause and foster team building and engagement. These 3 look pretty pleased with the meal they helped prepare – with good reason! Just look at that spread 😋 . . . . . . #giveback #volunteer #volunteering #corporatevolunteering #staffengagement #refugees #refugeeswelcome #istandwithrefugees #charityaustralia #australiancharity
It was a joy to participate in the 2019 Right of Asylum Reception hosted by Seafarers International House, where Rosa Estefany Caceres- Santana of First Friends of NJ & NY was recognized for her extraordinary work on behalf of asylum-seekers. #rightofasylum2019 . . . . . .  #humanrights #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #humanity #closethecamps #refugeeswelcome @firstfriendsofnjny  @americanfriendsservice #volunteer #volunteerwork #syrianrefugees #greateras1 #refugeeswelcome #welcomerefugees #asylum #asylumseekers #istandwithrefugees #refugeestories #everydayrefugees @hiasrefugees @rescueorg @catholiccharitiesny @cws_global #welcomingamerica #welcomehome #refugeechildren #refugeeart #refugeecrisis @cwsjerseycity @chicpeablog #jerseycitynj
#repost @ainun_faatihah_ with @make_repost ・・・ Bismillah Namanya Hasoun, anak Irak yang mengungsi ke Suriah.  Sebab Irak juga porak-poranda oleh kelompok berkostum hitam, terkhusus Muslim Sunni Arab, di Irak barat yang penuh gurun.  Mereka melihat Suriah lebih baik kondisinya, Idlib lebih hijau.  Ada aliran besar sungai Eufrat di Aleppo utara dan sebab lain seperti bantuan internasional lebih ramai di Suriah daripada Irak.  Setiap malam Hasoun mendatangi tanah kosong mengais sesuatu yang bisa dijual, entah sisa sayuran, umbi, atau akar-akaran.  Tapi saat ditanya tentang orang tuanya ia menangis, Inilah alasannya.  _ His name is Hasoun, an Iraqi boy who fled to Syria  Because Iraq was also ravaged by groups in black costumes, especially Sunni Arab Muslims, in desert-filled western Iraq  They see Syria better condition, Idlib greener. There is a large flow of the Euphrates river in northern Aleppo and other reasons such as international aid are more crowded in Syria than Iraq  Every night Hasoun went to Vacant land to scavenge something that could be sold, whether it was left over from vegetables, tubers, or roots.  But when asked about his parents he cried. This is the reason. Basta... 😭😓💔🙏 Barakallah @misimedissuriah  _ @ainun_faatihah_  #istandwithrefugees
(@littlemissflint) You’re wondering if I have off, for what? Columbus who..?! WE👏 DON’T👏 KNOW👏 HER ! 🤷🏾‍♀️ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀• ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀• ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀• ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀ ⠀ It’s time we stop celebrating genocide, of all kinds (i’m looking at you Thanksgiving!) and teach our kids about the real history behind these days that were once deemed an important part of our history.⠀ ⠀ Christopher Columbus didn’t discover America. Viking Explorer Leif Eriksson did, a whole 500 years before him. Natives became victim to one of the bloodiest events in history.. where there was kindness, Columbus saw weakness. Besides, we don’t honor a rapist, sex slaver, sociopath anyway. Not for nothing and not for the day off.
We have been busy making some new items. Dropping very soon, watch this space.  Thank you @erranttraveler for the beautiful photos. #welcomerefugees #artwomenhk
My first full-feature film about a small town in central Vermont that tried (and failed) to resettle 100 refugees from Syria and Iraq was just selected for the Blow Up International Film Festival in Chicago! I just started submitting it to various festivals and hope that more people show interest in what it means when people try to do good in Trump’s America.  You can find more info about this film on my website under “Film & Video”: viktorwitkowski.com  #rutland #vermont #trumpsamerica #blowupinternationalarthousefilmfest #chicago #documentary #arthouse #artfilm #vermonthistoricalsociety #syria #surianrefugees #istandwithrefugees #travelban #artandactivism #filmmaker #independentfilm #experimental #viktorlwitkowski

Take a ride on the ASRC tram and discover the story beside you 🚞 Some of our stories start with seeking safety, freedom and a better life for ourselves and our family. But refugees want their story to be defined by their futures and their contribution, not just their past trauma.  You can show your support and send a welcoming message for that promising future. Add your name to the pledge of Australians who celebrate diversity and inclusion.

Bismillah Can you imagine  Trauma, panic, fear, fatigue and hunger  Being refugees is not their desire  Children in conflict areas lost childhood and their future is our responsibility.  #istandwithrefugees  #savechildren  @ainun_faatihah_

Bismillah A refugee toddler offered food to the journalist who come to take her picture  She thought he was hungry  Little girl with a bigger heart.  #istandwithrefugees  #refugeechildren  @ainun_faatihah_
Entirely underrated for the patients I get to work with. My heart breaks and my soul feels as though it unravels, hearing what they’ve gone through and the adversity they still face when resettled. They then put my heart back together and give my soul life, with their unusual resilience, generosity, determination, gentleness, spunk, and love. At times I am speechless. Speechless from understanding what “humans” are capable of and then how resilient a human can be in return. Women, men, and children from all around the world having to seek refuge away from home. I can’t imagine surviving that, can you? #istandwithrefugees
You know what’s better than this delicious spread of Bangladeshi food? The people who made it! One of the best ways to build friendships with people from other cultures is to experience their food and hospitality.  Chances are we all have some kind of international cuisine in our city, whether it’s at a restaurant, a cafe, or in your neighbors kitchen. Why not experience a different culture right in your own city? You might be surprised by the friendships you form! . . #hospitality #knowyourneighbor #welcome #welcometothetable #bangladesh #bangladeshifood #ethnicfood #ethnicfoodie #foodpics #foodlovers #eatingfortheinsta  #foodphotography #food52 #yummy #delicious #truehospitality #istandwithrefugees #refugee #refugeeswelcome #myethnictable

Minha mãe africana, que me acolheu e cuida de mim desde que cheguei em Malawi em 2016 ❤️ hoje comemoramos o aniversário dela com muitoooo amor! ❤️ Ela a muitos anos foi obrigada a sair de seu país para sobreviver. Vivia em terras ricas de diamantes e por isso sua família foi atacada, torturada. Após a perda do seu esposo, conseguiu fugir para o campo de refugiados com seus filhos e mesmo com tanto sofrimento e dificuldades, acolheu e acolhe órfãos dentro do campo. Me acolheu também e eu me sinto a pessoa mais abençoada do mundo por ter uma família congolesa tão especial! #obrigadadeusporesseencontro #istandwithrefugees #refugiadoseumeimporto #refugeeswelcome

We Matter AY 2019 - 2020 Lesson 2
“I am not a passive victim, I am an active resistor.” Tonight some of our members got the opportunity to hear from guest speaker, Naruro Hassan. Naruro is a senior at ASU, and Somalian refugee, who actively works to empower other refugees and anyone she comes in contact with. Tonight we had discussion about empathy and how we can employ it in order to help empower the refugee community on a daily basis. We are about empowerment through education.✌️📖💞 • • • • #arizonastateuniversity #istandwithrefugees #refugeeswelcome #refugeestories

"It is human nature to fear that which we don’t know. But an even more natural human impulse is to show others kindness and respect; irrespective of their colour, creed, orientation or where they come from." Our ambassador Madeleine West @madmadswest wrote an open letter to Australia that conveys the values and emotions so many Australians share when it comes to refugees and people seeking asylum. You, dear supporter, are not alone in your sorrow and frustrations at the way our nation treats people seeking asylum. There are lots of us ready to stand up for what is right and welcome those who came here seeking our protection.  Join us by signing the pledge to welcome people seeking asylum and refugees 👉🏼(link in bio) . . . . . #refugees #asylumseekers #refugeeswelcome #petition #pledge #charityaustralia #pledgeforchange #australia #migrants #iamamigrant #melbourne #australiancharity #withrefugees #nonforprofit #asrc #refugeestories #compassion #humanrights #humanity #istandwithrefugees #yarratrams #madeleinewest #neighbours #theproject
#repost @hiasrefugees ・・・ Today we proudly showed up at DCA Airport in Washington, DC to highlight the administration's drastic cuts to the U.S. refugee resettlement program. Dozens of activists joined us to “welcome” refugees who will *not* arrive in the U.S. during the next year due to the Trump administration’s historically low refugee admissions ceiling.  We stood together with professionals from partner faith-based and secular refugee resettlement agencies who, for years, have greeted countless refugee families at DCA and other U.S. airports and helped them get established in their new home communities. We convened for nearly 95 minutes, symbolizing the average annual refugee ceiling – 95,000 – set by each administration since the Refugee Act became law in 1980. The administration’s drastic cuts fly in the face of the American and Jewish values that guide us and our long history of helping refugees start their lives anew in the U.S.  We stand for welcome.

This evening I had the privilege of speaking to Linda Velwest’s social justice students at @saintpetersuniversity about the global refugee crisis, US public policy around refugee resettlement and the asylum program, and what @welcomehomejerseycity does to support refugees, asylees, and asylum-seekers locally. What an amazing, engaged group young men and women! I have hope for the future of this country after tonight.
