THE ONE JOURNEY MOVEMENT 

Our Aim: to be the vibrant connecting layer between host communities and refugees and other displaced people. One Journey creates positive, life-enriching events and strategies for:  

Growing the National Celebration.  The 2nd Annual One Journey Festival takes place on June 29, 2019, with an anticipated 5,000+ participants and wide national and global visibility. This is the hallmark event for sharing our message of shared humanity with the world.

Telling the Stories That Change the Narrative.  Employing public events and every media channel and technology, One Journey works with NGOs, corporations, and our displaced brothers and sisters to share the positive, life-affirming stories of refugee talents, tenacity and triumphs.

Engaging Allies, Motivating Action.  One Journey moves volunteers to advocate for refugees, organize events, and assist resettling refugees and other displaced people. We have worked with more than 100 partners and will continue to connect organizations and individuals to address the refugee crisis.

Taking the Movement to the World.  One Journey is expanding rapidly across the U.S. and is laying the foundation to go global, as we make connections with allies to advance the One Journey movement with their own festivals and events.
