Crossing Borders: Putting Yourself In The Position Of Millions Of Refugees Around The World

Nov 15, 2017

If you were suddenly forced to leave your home because of violence and political conflict, what would you bring?  Where would you go? These are a few of the questions that an interactive exhibit by Doctors Without Borders challenged visitors to answer recently in Salt Lake City.  The exhibit’s aim was to help visitors imagine what more than 65 million people are experiencing across the world today.

UPR contributor Ross Chambless recently toured the traveling exhibit during its stop in Salt Lake and has this report as part of the UPR Original Series “Crossing Borders: A Yearlong Storytelling Project.”

The UPR Original Series "Crossing Borders" is a yearlong storytelling project between UPR and the USU Office of Global Engagement - providing services for international students and scholars; and facilitating study abroad opportunities for students and faculty. Details found here
