A Movie About Refugees

Stacia DenhartComment

The Good Lie, a movie starring Reese Witherspoon, is currently showing in select theaters.  It tells the story of the 1980s-1990s Sudanese conflict, the journey of the Lost Boys', and the realities of resettlement in America. Go see the movie – you'll laugh a little, cry a little, and learn a lot!

Coinciding with the movie, the United States Committee for Refugees and Immigrants has launched a campaign, called Refugees In America.  Using social media and multimedia, this campaign shines a light on the challenges faced by refugees while also celebrating the ways these new Americans enrich our neighborhoods, our culture, and our nation.  Check it out at refugeesinamerica.org.
