As part of the ‘I Get You’ campaign aimed at breaking down stereotypes and combating xenophobia, the Jesuit Refugee Service Europe mapped 315 grassroots refugee initiatives across nine EU countries. On Refugee Day 2017, JRS launched nine campaign videos that put some of these projects into focus. A European video contains highlights from the national videos which cover a huge range of communities and activities in Belgium, Croatia, France, Malta, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Romania and Spain. These community building initiatives are breaking down fear and stereotypes and are creating new opportunities for all population groups to be involved. 

Each 3-minute video is available in English and the local language. All videos are available on this YouTube playlist.
