International Rescue Committee

Unwelcome Home States

The US has been sending an unwelcome message to refugees around the world. To raise awareness, the IRC will hijack state border signs to help people understand what it truly feels like to be unwelcomed somewhere.

Out of Home

Each state will have a home page with information about the restrictive refugee policies in the United States. On the page, people can write a message to their state representatives encouraging more welcoming policies for refugees. 



The IRC will send the person a postcard for their home state. It will thank them for helping change the message.
