Event description

Description

A refugee is someone forced to leave their home country due to persecution based on race, ethnicity, religion, social group or political opinion.

An estimated 12 million people live in refugee camps worldwide and only 0.1% are resettled, repatriated, or integrated into normal society each year. The feature-length documentary, Warehoused, explores the plight of long-term refugees through a glimpse into the lives of those living in Dadaab, Kenya, one of the world’s largest refugee camps. We see the camp's inner workings through one man's journey to do everything in his power to provide for his family. This man’s story is not unique however; it accentuates the much larger problems that long-term refugees have faced for centuries. Des Moines is home to a vibrant community of individuals who have come to Iowa as refugees and many organizations are here to help.

Join us as we screen this informative film and learn more about our newest neighbors.
