According to the most recent United Nations figures, there are currently 65 million people forced to flee their home-- the highest level in human history. A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, natural disaster, war, or violence. The following module will provide the tools, knowledge, and ready-to-use materials to help students understand how one becomes a refugee, why it is important to welcome them, and how to take action to stand up for their humanity. This lesson draws on both the modern struggle refugees are undergoing, as well as provides historical parallels.
