In 2015, Ros was working in TV and volunteering at her Synagogue’s refugee support group, when the facebook event she set up quickly became a huge demonstration with 100,000 people. From there, Solidarity with Refugees was born which Ros now leads.
This is an inspirational story about what happen both personally and nationally when something you organise suddenly becomes massive.
Solidarty with Refugees is now supporting other grassroots refugee groups and getting the solidarity message out there. If we want long term solutions, we need to change the policies.
New to Podcasts?
You can listen online by pressing play above. Or you can download it by clicking on the little down arrow.
A better idea is to have our weekly episodes automatically downloaded to your mobile so you never miss one. You will need a podcast or podcatcher app.
On an iPhone: ‘Podcasts’ is already on your phone. Open the app, search for ‘Standing with Refugees’, click on our show (it has our red logo), then click Subscribe.
On Android: Download an app. We use Podbean but Podcast Addict or Podcast Player are others. Search for ‘Standing with Refugees’, click on our show (it has our red logo), then click either Subscribe or Follow.
Then, every Monday morning, our show will magically appear on your mobile and you can listen wherever and whenever you want. These apps have setting so that they will only download over WiFi so they don’t use up your data allowance, and they will remove the episode after listening so they don’t take up your memory.
