Giving Voice to the Silenced: Stories from the Frontline of Conflict

In this session...

Every minute, 24 people around the world are forced to flee their homes. That’s 34,000 people a day who leave everything behind in the hope of finding safety and a better tomorrow. Refugees and those living through conflict and war often live in the shadows, embarking on treacherous journeys during which they are at risk of hunger, sexual abuse and other unthinkable horrors. And these types of danger inform what we hear about refugees in the news and other media. We think about them as a collective, 65 million nameless, faceless people in trouble far away. But those 65 million people have hopes, dreams, talents, and important contributions to make, especially as the world works to find a solution for ending human-caused global atrocities.

During this conversation, we will explore ongoing international conflicts and crisis situations (Venezuela, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, etc.), focusing on how we can best tell the human stories at their center. We will focus specifically on the plights’ of girls and women, who are the most at risk in these situations. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of why it’s so critical to keep telling the stories of people facing crises and giving a voice to the world’s most vulnerable.
