Excerpt: "Since 2011, more than 68 million people have fled their homes in search of safetyfrom war, climate change, and human rights violations based mostly on gender, religion, and sexual orientation and gender identity. While most seek shelter in their home countries, over 25 million risk their lives to travel to foreign lands. As media and international aid agencies have repeatedly documented, all face enormous risks of sexual assault and abuse."
