We share stories of the refugee journey to advocate and educate, and to actuate integration.
Transforming the perception of refugees worldwide, one story at a time. We envision a world where there is no them, only us.
If stories you read move you to action there are so many ways to get involved.

Join us in this critical work at TSOS to transform the perception and reception of displaced persons.

Volunteer your time to our three pillars, education, advocacy, and integration, or join our next cohort of interns.


Our unique curriculum connects students to the individuals behind the refugee label through the power of personal narratives.

We provide a variety of free lesson plans that show how refugee displacement impacts literature, art, history, geography, language learning, and more.

Everyone can engage in the lives of their neighbors who have arrived as refugees, be that in helping with language, culture, education, housing, or employment.

A strong social webwork depends on local citizens and refugees connecting with and learning from one another. Our stories are the unique fibers we all weave into one vibrant and strong fabric of community.



We use storytelling to advocate for positive change in the perception and reception of refugees in communities worldwide. Refugees should have the power to define themselves as individuals first through telling their own stories in their own words. Our advocacy work hinges on these first-hand stories shared with factual context to prompt concrete action from ordinary citizens and decision-makers.
