Many of the refugees fleeing from their countries to America have been sent to Clarksville, Georgia. Speaking no English, they have a difficult time finding work. Jeff Shinabarger created jobs for them out of what other people thought of as just trash - old billboards. They turn these billboards into things like wallets, bags, and pillows.

The Home Stretch: Ending Family Homelessness in Dane County

BY SARAH CEPONIS
@ VOL 25 ON FEB 15, 2018

Over 500,000 people reside in Dane County, but not all of those people actually have a place to call home. United Way and its partner agencies have made great strides over the past decade in ensuring homelessness is rare and brief, but there is still important work to be done-and if we each step up to play a part, we can end family homelessness here.

3 min changed my life

BY SUNANDA
@ VOL 16 ON MAR 01, 2018

I was a leading rights activist in Sri Lanka for decades, my passion being peace with justice and freedom of expression with social responsibility. I came to Geneva on 24th May 2009 to make a intervention at UNHRC special session on Sri Lanka for post war justice. That 3 minute speech changed my life, I was not able to go back home and became a refugee, Geneva became my second home.
