On #WorldRefugeeDay, YouTube Shares A Strong Video To Understand The World Better

Donald Trump’s administration has brought forth many difficulties for immigrants, who by definition is a person who comes to live permanently in a foreign, or, in other words, seeks refuge far away from their homeland. It seems like he is determined on losing his humanity by bringing forth harsh laws to deport immigrants. But, there is humanity left in some people after all!!

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) invited seven YouTube creators to get to know refugees around the world and share their stories. This committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 40 countries and 28 offices across the U.S. helping people to survive and regain control of their future.

Some YouTube creators have taken this upon themselves to make their voices heard. YouTube Creators for Change is a new initiative from YouTube dedicated to amplifying the voices of role models who are tackling difficult social issues with their channels. From combating hate speech to countering xenophobia and extremism, to simply making the case for greater tolerance and empathy toward others, these creators are helping generate positive social change with their global fan bases. You just need to type #MoreThanARefugee to see their praiseworthy efforts.
