Our Mission

In early 2017, the federal government severely restricted the number of refugees allowed into this country.

Refuge Lansing is a grassroots, community response to this climate of fear and intimidation facing immigrants and refugees in our current political context. More than two dozen creative professionals volunteered to work with refugee families in Greater Lansing to share their stories.

Our mission is a call to action.

This website, as well as the accompanying exhibit and book, are meant to encourage our community to continue supporting resettlement efforts through donations, volunteer work and advocacy.

Our goal is to celebrate everything refugees add to our community, and to create a sense of empathy, hope, understanding and welcome.
