How does MSF and journalists convey the scope and scale of the current refugee crisis to the American public? How do they try to tell individual stories when the overall numbers—65 million displaced globally—are so daunting? Margaret Warner of PBS NewsHour will moderate a panel featuring Deb Amos of NPR, photographer Brian Sokol, and Phil Zabriskie, editorial director of MSF-USA.
WEBCAST
 Monday, Oct 3
2:00 PM
 
 
Nearly 300,000 Central Americans enter Mexico every year, many fleeing extreme gang violence in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. In search of safer surroundings for their families and a life free of fear, they undertake a difficult, perilous journey north often accompanied by the same threats – theft, kidnapping, assault, rape, murder– that they fled in the first place. These men, women, and children are often characterized as migrants, but if they returned home, they might well be killed. Should they be called migrants, then? Or are they really refugees and asylum-seekers? Margaret Brennan of CBS News will lead a discussion between MSF-USA executive director Jason Cone, MSF aid worker Sue Averill, and regional expert Mary Speck.
