HUMAN MIGRATION AND DISPLACEMENT.
Our world hit a milestone in 2016—not one with the fanfare and excitement of launching the first satellite into space or landing on the moon, but a quiet and sobering one that is sending shock-waves through communities across the globe. Last year, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees announced that nearly 1 in 100 people around the world has been forcibly displaced from their homes. That’s the highest percentage on record since the UN began keeping statistics in 1951. There are currently more than 60 million people globally who have fled from wars, persecution, extreme poverty, violence, or other threats against their lives.
