“There’s about 100 million people that have been forced to leave their homes due to climate change or wars. Of those, about 40% are children below the ages of 18. There are about 400,000 children that are born every year in a refugee camp.”

– Karen Korponai

“It’s really the players and the poets and performers amongst us who can best speak truth to power. My mom would often say, sing out loud that which spoken word alone will not address.”

– Nick Sciorra

“I cannot imagine being forced to flee my home. I saw something that I thought was wrong, and I wanted to make a difference.”

– Clayton Anderson
