Event Description:
Trace the personal stories of hardship, survival, and hope experienced in Bangladeshi camps through a documentary called Journey to Change, a discussion, and an exhibit created by a human rights photographer. Learn how you can make a difference in the lives of displaced populations around the world.

OBAT Helpers is an Indianapolis based non-profit that serves as the only organization in the United States dedicated to supporting Pakistanis who are stranded in Bangladesh. These stranded Pakistanis, called Biharis, were supposed to be repatriated forty-two years ago. Today, they still live in impoverished camps that were meant to be temporary. Forgotten by the international community, their daily lives are complicated by an uncertain legal status in Bangladesh.
