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.
A crucial aspect to appreciating the tragedy of displacement and becoming an ally for resettling and displaced community is relationship-building. Through friendships we believe tangible solutions may be discovered for various challenges displaced and resettling communities may face. Through relationship building we work towards creating more inclusive and welcoming communities for those who are resettling to the area.
Furthermore, we recognize that refugee camps are inhumane and by their very nature organized to warehouse people. We work to challenge refugee camps as a normative concept, while pressuring our audiences and leaders to consider a better, more long-term solutions.
