Refugees Deeply is an independent digital media project dedicated to covering the Refugee crisis. Our team, a mix of journalists and technologists, aims to provide readers and experts with the kind of in-depth information that no other media outlet is able to offer. We hope this, in turn, will lead to deeper understanding, greater clarity and more sustained public engagement on this this critical – and quintessentially human – issue.
Refugees Deeply is a part of News Deeply, a media startup and social enterprise based in New York. We are registered as a B Corp, or Benefit Corporation, with the stated mission of advancing foreign policy literacy through public service journalism. We receive no government funding, instead earning our revenues through a mix of foundation grants and digital-design services. Our client partners include the World Economic Forum, Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and the Baker Institute at Rice University.
We want anyone who visits Refugees Deeply to come away better informed and more engaged in this global issue. We welcome your feedback and story ideas through email@example.com.

Bridges of Understanding
Bridges of Understanding is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, nonpolitical organization driven by the mission to foster a personal understanding between the American people and people of the Arab World through original education and outreach initiatives. As tensions between regions intensify and the refugee crisis escalates, thought-provoking lessons and dialogues at the desk, in the field, and online serve to humanize ‘the other’ — so that the very notion may soon cease to exist.
