Rocio and her husband have lived in the United States for more than 20 years, but sometimes she does not feel welcome. One of her biggest fears is having her family split apart.
In early 2018, CRS launched: Be UnAfraid as s part of the larger, Share The Journey, global refugee support campaign. This two year project was inspired by Pope Francis. who has called for Catholics globally to make pilgrimages and to encounter their neighbors.
In April we asked dozens of refugees and their American neighbors to start critical conversations by sharing their stories with each other.
What they discovered is that the very fears that tear us apart can actually bring us together.
