Mission Statement

The Refuge Media Project is producing a documentary film on healthcare and social services for immigrant survivors of political torture now living in the United States. The film will be a motivational call-to-action -- a tool to educate and engage healthcare, mental health and social service providers and students, community organizers and groups serving immigrant communities.

Description

The goals of the film are to increase public awareness and understanding of the situations of torture survivors and their families in our communities; to enable torture survivors to speak to the healthcare community about their experiences as patients; t o help providers recognize torture survivors among their immigrant clients; to demonstrate ways that providers can effectively confront the issues that are unique to immigrant torture survivors; and to inspire and empower clinicians to meet the needs of this growing and increasingly vulnerable population.

With the help of our advisors and outreach partners, an educational distributor, survivors themselves and other collaborators, we will reach out to communities across the country and use the film as a tool to promote dialogue and involvement among healthcare and social service providers, students, and others.
