Join the One Journey Festival for a free screening of From Damascus to Chicago and 4.1 Miles. Panelists from across the community – refugee resettlement agencies, refugees themselves, journalists, and business leaders – will participate in the screening programming, with each screening event having a moderator and representatives who will contextualize the crisis, describe the process and importance of telling the refugee ‘story’, and answer audience’s questions about the many issues surrounding resettlement

From Damascus to Chicago and 4.1 Miles Conversation Starters:

What comes to mind when you hear the words “migrant” and “refugee”? What are some positive and negative representations of migrants and refugees that you have seen in the media?

What circumstances might force you (or your family) to abandon your home and leave your country? Where do you think you would go? How do you think the residents of your new country would react to you and your family?

For more discussion prompts, download the lesson plan.

Visit our local events calendar for a full list of events happening across the country and join our Community Network to host a screening of your own!
