MacArthur Grantees on World Refugee Day

Today is World Refugee Day.

Learn more about our support for Chicago’s immigrant and refugee communities, and check out what some of our grantees had to say: MacArthur Fellows Lynsey Addario, Becca Heller and Lin-Manuel Miranda; our journalism and media grantees; and Sesame Workshop and International Rescue Committee, the $100 million recipients in our 100&Change competition.

A young South Sudanese boy walks for miles to bring a bucket of food to his mother, who is busy collecting firewood in the bush outside Bentiu, in South Sudan. On #WorldRefugeeDay we should think about all those who have been displaced from their homes due to war and insecurity. On assignment for @natgeo @nikonusa#nikonambassador @refugees@unmissmedia
Con el apoyo de @macfound y LEGO Foundation, nuestros amigos en @sesameworkshophr están trabajando con el Comité de Rescate Internacional para llevar el aprendizaje temprano a los niños afectados por el conflicto sirio. Estamos orgullosos de mostrar nuestro apoyo a su programa y su dedicación a ayudar a los niños de todo el mundo. #WorldRefugeeDay
