Footage's #ConnectsMe Campaign Reveals Common Humanity

In conjunction with our fall 2016 crowdfunding campaign to amplify the voices of young women refugees, we engaged the public in our #ConnectsMe initiative, both on the streets and social media. Through mail tags, tweets, and community dialogue, we have discovered and curated the experiences, feelings, and values that connect us all to forcibly displaced individuals throughout the world. As the global community seeks solutions to the current refugee crisis, we ask you to consider what connects you to refugees. View the public's thoughtful and moving responses below. Thank you to everyone who participated on and off line, revealing powerful aspects of our shared humanity. For example, @mbbarthman tweeted: "Wanting health for my family #ConnectsMe to refugees. #HerConnectHer @footageyouth."
