June 24, 2020

The NGO Committee on Migration hosted an online NIRV Screen&Discuss, June 25, 2020,  with CSFilm director Michael Sheridan.  The event brought together leaders, staff and activists from a global coalition of organizations working on issues of migration and displacement.  The Chair of the Committee wrote following the event:

On behalf of the NGO Committee on Migration, I want to thank you for a really interesting presentation and discussion yesterday at our final monthly meeting for 2020, this one virtual. The project you have undertaken, to train migrants and refugees to become film-makers and record the stories of their lives and their concerns, is a really fascinating community undertaking, designed to both foster coherence among the migrants and refugees themselves and understanding in the wider community.

What was emphasized during the discussion is that it is up to those that believe in the US as a nation of immigrants, to counter the lies and misinformation that is permeating the current dialogue about new immigrants and refugees in the US. It is incumbent on all of us to speak out against xenophobia and hatred toward the newest members of our communities.
