Learn how to help refugees fleeing war and persecution live safely and with dignity by attending the FORGE 2008 Conference on Refugee Warehousing. To register, visit http://www.refugeeconference.org/.
Nearly 9 million people around the world are victims of refugee warehousing. Many are confined to refugee camps for decades, others banned from working indefinitely. They are not criminals who belong in jail or animals that belong in zoos— they are people fleeing persecution who deserve the right to live freely.
Refugee warehousing is a direct violation of human rights. We must demand change now. From the hallowed halls of Congress to the squalid refugee camp in Kenya, people around the world are holding the international community accountable for refugee rights.
The 2008 Conference on Refugee Warehousing presents a unique opportunity to learn about the issues and join the global movement to end the human warehousing of refugees. Learn from experts and activists in the field.
Keynote speakers Merrill Smith of USCRI and Dr. Barbara Harrell-Bond of the American University in Cairo will kick off the conference with an inspiring talk about how you can help stop this inhuman practice.
Help us spread the word. Tell colleagues, students and local activists about this unique opportunity.
When: October 10th – 12th, 2008
Where: University of Pittsburgh
