Earlier this year the International Olympic Committee announced it would select a group of refugee athletes who are displaced by global conflict to compete at the Rio Olympics. Under the Obama administration, the number of global refugees has reached levels not seen since the end of World War II.
Bold joins Team Salon in a new Facebook Live series with news, insight and analysis. Co-host Josh Zepps joins Herb London, president of The London Center for Policy Research, to discuss the Olympic refugee team and whether this creates a normalization of refugee status.
We will also interview Daniel Pinchbeck, author of upcoming book, How Soon Is Now?.
