Join Us for ‘Refugee Hotel’ Events This Month in New York

Join Voice of Witness, photographer Gabriele Stabile, and editor Juliet Linderman at events celebrating the release of Refugee Hotel, the newest title in the Voice of Witness series. Refugee Hotel is a groundbreaking collection of photography and interviews that documents the arrival of refugees in the United States. Evocative images are coupled with moving testimonies from people describing their first days in the U.S., the lives they’ve left behind, and the new communities they’ve since created.

We hope to see you at one of our events in New York this February!
