At present, the refugee crisis has elicited varied reactions by individuals, communities, and nations. This poster aims to raise awareness on how a person gains refugee status and is granted resettlement into the United States, and debunk misconceptions about refugees. It also seeks to raise awareness about the diversity within refugee groups that live in the United States. The information presented is a combination of research from online sources, site visits, interviews with refugees, and work experience with refugee communities.
