I am in a team that is participating to coordinate a exhibition for our team this semester. Over time we will try looking for spaces to do it, advertisments, etc. This teams goal and topic was about refugees and how to help them and we hope to promote this in our exhibition with a strong message showing why and how should we help refugees. San Diego is a city that takes in most refugees, which has led to a lot of diversity such as the Vietnamese impact in southern San Diego in City Heights. A way we can contribute and help the welcoming and the stay of the new refugees is spreading awareness, contributing in sorts of organizations.

We want to spread positive messages and stories to refugees around the world. We came up with the idea to make postcards in coordination with the organization, Any Refugee, started by a ten year-old Alaskan boy, William Scannell IV. We set up a postcard signing booth in front of our school, High Tech High and invited people to share a positive message that will be sent to refugees in 45 different countries. We successfully made over 200 postcards that are being sent to the organization, Any Refugee!
