Common, Gregory Porter & Keyon Harrold – Running (Refugee Song)





To this date, there are as many as 65 million people around the world who have been displaced by conflict and/or default with intentions of fulfilling their want to escape persecution. Knowing that is unheard of and to add, at least half of them are just innocent children. Knoiwing how fortunate we are in this country makes me feel so grateful for everything i've ever recived. America is so far removed from this reality that most of us probably don’t even realize this is happening.

If people like Donald Trump have their way, none of those refugees will be allowed to seek asylum here because some of them are "scary brown Muslims". It really goes against what this country is supposed to be about. Social activist, Common, Gregory Porter, Keyon Harrold and Andrea Pizziconi look to raise awareness about this ongoing crisis with their new song and video “Running (Refugee Song)” which you can watch above. If you are willing to contribute to the cause you can go here and making a donation to download the song. It’s a small gesture, but it’s better than nothing.
