To bid on GRC silent auction items please come to the Journey to Hope event at the Global Refugee Center.  Prior to the event you can make a sealed bid on any item by bringing it to the GRC.  You can also mail your bid to the Global Refugee Center.  Send your bid to attention: David Flatt: Global Refugee Center Auction P.O. Box 1090, Greeley, CO 80632.  All mailed and hand delivered bids must be received by October 31, 2014.  Winners of the silent auction will be announced on the GRC website Monday, November 3.  Winners will have one week to make payment via check, money order, cashiers check, credit card, or PayPal. Cash payments can only be made at the Global Refugee Center.  If no payment is made after one week then the item will go to the second highest bidder.  

Join the Global Refugee Center and the Refugee Collaboration Forum for "A Walk in Their Shoes," a unique refugee simulation event.  "A Walk in Their Shoes" is designed to simulate common situations refugees must go through such as escaping their homes, finding temporary shelter and crossing the border.  While it is impossible to generalize the experience of refugees into one “refugee experience,” this simulation event provides a valuable foundation to begin to understand the complex challenges refugees have faced in their home countries and in resettlement in the United States. 

These sessions will be interactive and will require attendees to actively engage with the experiences of refugees.  The simulation will also require that you use your imagination, deal with emotions of frustration and confusion, and will at times place you in uncomfortable situations.  The experiences you face in “A Walk in Their Shoes”, while at times challenging, will be incredibly eye-opening and will allow you to be exposed to powerful emotions in a very personal and enduring manner.
