The Exodus Institute envisions a future America that recognizes and embraces the value and contributions of those seeking refuge from violence, poverty, discrimination, and environmental degradation to the fabric of our culture, society, and economy.
How does our organization hope to achieve that?
We have a three-pronged strategy in which we act to educate, to advocate and to facilitate, in order to raise public awareness and influence public policy.
We educate students, decision-makers and the general public regarding the drivers of forced migration, the economic value that forced migrants bring to the United States, and the importance of forced migrants to the American narrative.
We advocate for policies and laws at the local and state level within the United States that promote the social, cultural and economic inclusion of forced migrants in our communities.
And we act as a facilitator to leverage the deep experience and networks of the Institute’s leadership to broker cross-sector partnerships designed to advance the organization’s mission.
