Resettled: New Haven's Refugee Community

The Politic selected the New Haven’s refugee community and resettlement program because together they exemplify the city’s multiculturalism, tolerance, and activism.

Given the growing politicization of refugee status, the refugee advocacy community offered a localized alternative to the massive visual production surrounding refugees in international media. The film centers around refugee experiences and the continuing efforts of resettlement and support services in New Haven.

The movie producers hope you learn about the incredible work of people in New Haven and draw inspiration for future engagement in your local community.

Start Fresh has taken up the challenge and welcomed four refugee families to New London and works together with the eight families that have resettled in New London County.

Start Fresh will be welcoming families in 2018 and needs your support to continue our work.
