I am preparing for a trip to Bangladesh and possibly Myanmar in December. I will be fact-finding and helping to tell a story of my visit to the people in Southern California. I would very much appreciate being able to dialogue with members of this platform to help begin to amplify my voice, and build power relations that can advocate for change...
I am not normally a 'name and shame' type of guy. I learned during my career with UNHCR about how it is possible to make change come to be, using and leveraging technology, but always ensuring the citizen voices were being hear.
Citizen voices, especially those voices of people who have fled their country and are vulnerable is certainly very complex. But helping people to help themselves has always been very rewarding for me personally.
Allow me to make a quick introduction to the problems that I am preparing to face - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ky0DoYv2Ph8&pbjreload=10
