Push Factors

The deadly link between human trafficking and the involuntary displacement of millions of children, women, and men around the world is the defining human rights issue of our time. Without far greater awareness and public resolve than presently exists, we will have no answer when future generations ask: “Where were you when all this happened? Why did all these vulnerable people suffer and die on your watch?”

Oh Mercy, the first film in the Running to Stand Still series, takes us to US/Mexico border, where questions of life, death, dignity, and loss become all too real. 

Waiting for Home, the second film in the Running series is about the persecution of a million Rohingya and their life in the largest refugee camp in human history.

Affirming the Humanity of Refugees and Asylum Seekers on the US/ Mexico Border
The Unspoken Tragedy of the Rohingya in Cox's Bazar
