Refugee & Immigrant Services and Empowerment
Organization mission statement: RDBO promotes justice for refugees and immigrants with different abilities through legal representation, training, and advocacy for refugees and immigrants, their families and their communities to empower them to understand and support refugees and immigrants with different abilities as they seek healthcare, and explore options ranging from disability benefits to vocational opportunities and seek services in the community.
Project description: We are looking for a videographer to help us tell our story. While the concept of refugees and immigrants is well-understood, we work with and empower a niche subset -- those who suffer from disabilities, including both mental health and physical damage as a result of war-related violence, trauma, and torture. It is challenging to tell that story in a compelling short video that is respectful of our clients (they cannot be viewed full face on screen) and helps the viewer to understand what we are doing, which includes legal representation as well as programs to help them and their families.
