ROC amplifies diverse narratives of migrant and displaced communities through alliance and relationship building. We work to make the US a more welcoming place to resettling communities and to eradicate refugee camps as a normative concept.


Our Programs

ROC’s programs are all in collaboration with community-led initiatives and efforts. We ally ourselves with individuals and organizations to educate our audiences about mass displacement and resettlement. All while working to leverage support to those transitioning across borders.
