United States has been recognized as the country of the free, land of democracy, and land of opportunity. People of all creed has made the US their home and pursued happiness here. The global rise of nationalism, recent political developments and divisive rhetoric against diversity test our values and beliefs.
We, PII, believe that rising doubt and skepticism about the value of diversity in the US needs to be recognized. We believe that successful integration of immigrants and refugees to the US will reduce this skepticism around the value of diversity in the US.
PII is organizing an academic support program combined with mentorship and career/college counseling geared toward refugee students in grades 8 thru 11.
