Walk a Mile in a Refugee’s Shoes is a simulation created to expose people to the lives of refugees in refugee camps in the first person narrative. Each attendee receives information regarding the details of a refugee’s life and is expected to play the role of that refugee. Ultimately, the goal is to illustrate the challenges and hopelessness that many refugees experience in real life. Although many of us cannot truly share in those experiences, the first step in helping our immigrant neighbors is becoming aware of their struggles.

World Refugee Day at Indy Urban Acres will also include a service project and a community art project, followed by lunch at Old Bethel United Methodist Church down the street. We ask for a $5 donation at the door to offset the cost of lunch. Join us!
