November 14 marks the date that Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ, 28th Superior General of the Society of Jesus, founded the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) in 1980. Join JRS/USA as they recognize 40 years of service to refugees with the national virtual event “40 Years of Walking with Refugees” on Thursday, November 12, 2020, from 5-6 PM Central.
The mission of Jesuit Refugee Service/USA is to accompany, serve, and advocate for the rights of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons.
January 6, 2020 — This National Migration Week, Jesuit leaders urge us to support and advocate for migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
This simulation exercise allows participants to experience what a refugee goes through when he must flee his country. Obviously, it is impossible to really know what a refugee experiences until we actually become one.
