One Journey builds enduring allies for refugees fleeing their home countries and facilitates human connection between them and their host communities. Its signature One Journey Festival celebrates the talents, stories and contributions of refugees around the world, bringing people together through the shared languages of art, food, music, dance, storytelling, sports, and technology. The Take Action tent lets festival guests connect with other local nonprofits serving the refugee community. An employment mentoring workshop and career fair connects refugees with coaches, and an annual Holiday Market showcases artisan crafts, providing financial opportunities for artists and occasions to share their cultures with a broader audience. Film screenings on refugee and immigrant issues followed by topical discussions with academics, community leaders, activists, and refugees share stories and inspire action. A leader in refugee welcoming, support, and advocacy, One Journey knows the value of celebration and connection.
