WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO STAND IN SOLIDARITY?
ROC respects and privileges the knowledge found in experience. We organize regular meetings and events on university campuses and neighboring communities to facilitate storytelling and sharing. In so doing, we work to challenge preconceptions of displaced and migrating communities and notions of refugee camps as a normative concept.
Each event educates audience members about current instances of displacement through the voices of those who have experienced such atrocity in different ways. Together with audience members and speakers, ROC members brainstorm ways to challenge the status quo and create a more equitable society for those experiencing displacement or resettlement.
