Journey to a New Home:
Ramallah Club Arab Artists Program
The "Journey to a New Home" is an arts project that will empower Arab artists by allowing them to tell their own stories through various art forms. Arab artists take pride in their cultural roots and encourage each other to achieve self-reliance through storytelling. This project is designed to promote these values among the public through various artistic expressions created by Arab artists in Jacksonville, Florida.
WeaveTales has teamed up with the Ramallah Club of Jacksonville, Florida, to find talented Arab artists who wish to showcase their work at the arts show in Jacksonville on January 12, 2020. The invited artists will work with WeaveTales in sharing their experiences as immigrants, refugees, or descendants of migrants to tell the stories of preserving cultural heritage through art.

Iraqi Activists Society (IAS)
Since the war in Iraq in 2003, the country has struggled with corruption and instability, and recently, the situation grew more volatile and violent leading to deaths of innocent protestors (for more details, read this or this). Founded on October 1, 2019, the Iraqi Activists Society (IAS) is a sub-organization of Refugees Stories consisting of concerned Iraqi activists who are former refugees from Iraq now mobilizing to provide rapid humanitarian assistance to the oppressed peaceful protesters for free speech and advocacy for Iraqi refugees within and outside the country.
The primary goals of the members of the IAS are to support freedom of the press and safeguarding human rights in Iraq by providing rapid humanitarian assistance and other training and education programs that could help build strong activism to protect the authentic stories of Iraqi citizens and refugees. In the long run, the IAS hopes to contribute to the stabilization of Iraq so that more refugees could return to their home country. To join IAS, apply here.
