Alicia Premieres Short Film for World Refugee Day

| Activism

For World Refugee Day, Alicia’s cultural movement, We Are Here, has partnered with CARE, Oxfam and War Child on a new campaign to raise awareness and reinvigorate the conversation around the refugee crisis currently affecting millions around the world. As part of the campaign, Alicia stars in a short film debuting today called Let Me In, directed by Jonathan Olinger from Human.

“I was stunned when I learned that there are more refugees living in the world today than at any other point in history, and half of them are children. Creating this film really allowed us to imagine, what if we were the refugees? What if we were the ones torn from the arms of our families and loved ones? How would it feel if this were happening to us?” – Alicia
