Meet the Madogo family: three brothers reunited in Memphis following nearly two decades as refugees displaced from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Merely boys when their family was forced to flee their homeland the first time, but welcomed to America as men in their 20s, they were eager to make up for lost time, gain stability, and integrate into the beautiful diversity of their new city.
.
“When we came here, they said no one would care for us in America, that we wouldn’t know our neighbors, but we have seen something different,” describe David and Basuze, resettled first in 2014. “People have welcomed us, they have invited us to their homes to have a meal. That means a lot, that’s a big thing on its own. We had people sit down with us and teach us how to budget. We needed a lot of help to learn how things are done in America. Thank you!”
.
World Relief Memphis, their Good Neighbor Team volunteers, and a local church provided the help they needed and a close community for the brothers, so that when older brother Joseph, his wife and teens were approved and invited to the U.S., they were elated about being reunited and welcomed in Memphis. These families are thriving in Memphis and serve as community leaders for other refugees and immigrants who arrive, so much so that Basuze (center) has served on our staff as a Resettlement Specialist since 2016!

"First of all, we must acknowledge that the world, at present, is not a peaceful place. It seems that all around the globe there is armed conflict, modern day slavery, domestic violence, terrorism, racism, sexism, and hundreds of thousands of refugees seeking safety from wars or climate change or poverty...let us make a solemn vow to do our best to live according to the Golden Rule. This rule that is shared by all the major religions, urges us to do to unto others as we would have them do unto us."

16 years ago a Judge ruled that I be deported from the United States; myself, my two brothers, my mother, and father. [Please read all parts of this] We appealed several times and were denied. Our case reached the point where it was in deportation withholding, pending a Supreme Court hearing if we were again denied of our U.S. residency. We finally won. It took 12 years to obtain permanent residency in the U.S., 17 years to become a U.S. Citizen, but it took a lifetime of heartache to simply just be here.

My mother, father, and two of my brothers left my birth country in July of 1996. We arrived in the U.S. on July 17th, 1996 seeking Asylum. 22 years ago, today. [please read part 2 - 5 in comments]

Yeni bir ülke bulamazsın, başka bir deniz bulamazsın.
Bu şehir arkandan gelecektir.
Sen gene aynı sokaklarda dolaşacaksın,
aynı mahallede kocayacaksın;
aynı evlerde kır düşecek saçlarına.
Dönüp dolaşıp bu şehre geleceksin sonunda.
Başka bir şey umma
Ömrünü nasıl tükettiysen burada, bu köşecikte,
öyle tükettin demektir bütün yeryüzünü de. #smearv @smearv #şiirlerdenparçalar #orhanveli #franzkafka #sabahattinali #edipcansever #atillailhan #ilhanberk #cemalsüreya #turgutuyar #özdemirasaf #necipfazılkısakürek #yaşarkemal #nazımhikmet #cahitzarifoglu ##everydayrefugees #refugees #refugeecrisis #crimesagainsthumanity .#warinsyria #cristianoronaldo #warinsyria #worldrefugeeday ##cahitzarifoğlu #abdurrahimkarakoç #franzkafka #yaşarkemal #tomrisuyar #edipcansever #tarihtebugün

Hula Skirt Siphonophore | Photograph Kate Powell (@kate.e.powell)
.
“An upwelling event brought this deep sea dweller to the surface water of Catalina Island, off the coast of southern California,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Kate Powell. “You are looking at a super organism — siphonophores — which are comprised of several small animals (zooids) that work together for survival. These zooids each have specific functions that help the siphonophore thrive thousands of feet beneath the surface of the sea.”

“Thank you for sharing this image and your comprehensive caption Kate. It is hard to believe that this creature usually lives about 2,297-3,281 feet (or 700-1,000 meters) deep, and I love that you were able to share your fortunate encounter with the community! I enjoy the simplicity of this image; it really allows the Siphonophore to shine, it almost looks like a beautiful flower floating underwater.” — Photographer and filmmaker Michaela Skovranova (@mishkusk)

Horses run through the snow in Hokkaido, Japan. While perhaps not typically associated with Japan, horses have lived in the country for almost 2,000 years. In fact, there are eight purebred Japanese breeds.

Quando começamos o projeto "Chimena - em vermelho", Joice (irmã de Chimena) tinha acabado de ter sua filha Dayane aqui no Brasil. Como não conseguiram tratar da documentação a tempo, elas tiveram que voltar pra Angola para não pagar multa por estarem em situação ilegal no país.
Esse mês elas voltaram pra finalmente retirar os documentos de nacionalidade brasileira.
Nós reencontramos com essa neném linda que parece não ter se esquecido da gente, e apesar da pouca idade, já consegue ser tão expressiva quanto a mãe nas fotos.

Hello, I’m Santi Palacios (@SantiPalacios), an independent photojournalist currently based in Barcelona and working worldwide. I’ll be sharing with you part of my 5-year work on migration.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During the past years I have focused on migrants, the reasons why they leave their countries, as well as their journeys and final destinations, as a way to connect and understand global concept of conflict.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A sociological approach to migration can help us to comprehend the interrelation of social conflicts from a global perspective. Natural disasters, war, persecution or global warming - these all are reasons for people to leave their countries of origin. Migrant routes become an extreme experience for human beings. Meanwhile, receiving countries also face multiculturalism, racism, integration or labor issues, which, I believe, are all social conflicts that must be understood as interrelated in order to find ways to solve them.

Meet Fereshteh. | Chances are, if you’ve sent or received a @flowersfordreams bouquet, it’s got her handwriting on it. We met through our March 2017 charity @girlforwardgram and are so grateful to have her on the team. | In honor of #WorldRefugeeDay, we want to say thank you to her and all who come to this country looking to contribute to a better life, equal access to employment, chances at professional success, and more. Although sometimes it feels like our leaders don’t, we will and always do have your back #withrefugees #refugeeswelcome

Twin Cities World Refugee Day was a wonderful success! Thankful for an amazing CAPI USA team that pulled this community event together.

"He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the Foreigner, giving him food and clothing. You also must love the Foreigner, since you too were once Foreigners in the land of Egypt." Deuteronomy 10:18-19

Today is World Refugee Day. What do you think when you hear the word "Refugee"? I think of these faces and many more like them, who have endured more than I ever will in my lifetime. People who have the most incredible resilience, people who deserve to be embraced and welcomed, people who deserve to be loved. They are real people just like me and you. They each have a story. They are sons and daughters, they are mothers and fathers.
They are the Foreigner. And so are we. #lovetheforeigner #refugeeswelcome #WorldRefugeeDay

Update: Trump Signs Executive Order Halting Family Separations....... Why did we have to pressure this man to sign an order like this anyway? Why was this happening in the first place? Today is World Refugee Day and last night I cried knowing there are (at least) four “infant detention centers” in existence in our country. INFANT. DETENTION. CENTERS. The lack of empathy, compassion, and humanity that this country shows towards ALL People of Color is embarrassing and disgusting. Everyday I’m constantly reminded that this country and system isn’t really for US but the videos that were plastered all over my timeline were a little too much for me and hit far too close to home. I think it’s about time I unplug for a little.
Prayers to the families and individuals affected by ALL forms of institutionalized racism in a country that does not truly care about our black and brown bodies.
As a Pittsburgh native, I can’t go without sending prayers to the family and friends of the 17 year old boy shot in his back and killed by police yesterday.
We have to do better as a country. #JusticeForAntwonRose #WorldRefugeeDay
