Joy Justus- Refugees: The Stories We tell

Who is Joy Justus?

Joy is a graduate of UC Berkeley and Fuller Theological Seminary. She began working with World Relief in 2012 in Indonesia. She taught English to refugees from the Middle East and South Asia who were locked in a prison waiting to be processed by the United Nations. She now works as a church Mobilizer for World Relief in Sacramento.

The once distant realities of war and the consequential plight of refugees is no longer an “over there” reality. We are being reminded daily of it, and yet our personal connection with the people affected by these realities can still remain distant. In this talk, Joy Justus challenges us to re-frame the narratives we use to interpret the lives of refugees by sharing her personal connections to refugees internationally and locally as well as reminding us of our shared Biblical story... to read more of Joy's thoughts and others CLICK HERE!
