The I’m Your Neighbor’s Welcoming Library was exhibited alongside the Refugee Dolls project at the 1 Journey Festival in DC in June. Honored to have the Refugee Dolls’ founder Jeanne Trabulsi acquire the first Welcoming Library to travel out of Maine, the project’s pilot state.
The Refugee Doll Project
Refugee dolls are educational tools to be used in schools, libraries, and multicultural events to foster awareness of and appreciation for refugees. The dolls represent school children from the Islamic World, Central America, and Africa because refugees from these areas are heavily represented in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We encourage you to make your own refugee doll based upon the refugee populations in your state.
