'We Are Here' Project brings refugees' stories to the surface

As nations around the globe are facing an immigration crisis, here in the U.S., there’s a debate about how to handle the surge of refugees seeking safety from oppressive governments.

And right now in Milwaukee, hundreds — if not thousands — of refugees live among us, including a large population of children and teenagers attending public schools around the city.

88Nine is bringing you stories from high school students who have traveled the world, in some cases putting themselves directly in danger, in search of better lives here in Milwaukee.  Together with Know Thyself, 88Nine presents the “We Are Here” Project.

Listen to an interview below.

I just want them to think we're equal.
