iACT for Refugees, 4th Annual Event

  • Vacasa 850 Northwest 13th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Please join us for an exclusive screening of Not Just Football: from genocide to the World Cup at the fourth annual iACT for Refugees event by iACT and Never Again Coalition, and generously hosted by Vacasa

This inspiring documentary is the original story of Darfur United, an all-refugee men's soccer team co-created by iACT and refugees from Darfur living in camps on the Chad-Sudan border. The documentary chronicles their unbelievable journey from refugee camps to the 2012 Viva World Cup in Iraq, giving them a world stage on which to represent their people—and all refugees.  

Before the movie, enjoy wine and local beer provided by Leikam Brewing and Flat Brim Wines and indulge in delicious small bites from Stella Taco. You'll be able to do this while mingling with iACT Founder, Chief of Vision and Strategy, Gabriel Stauring, Darfur United Head Coach, Mark Hodson, and a Darfur United player from the refugee camps in eastern Chad. The event will offer opportunities to support refugee athletes and students, and win unique raffle items including vacation home rentals, restaurant gift certificates, sporting event tickets, and much, much more.

This year has been witness to extreme violence and tension in the country of Sudan. Darfur United truly represents a movement of hope for Darfuris, Sudanese, and displaced people worldwide. Purchase tickets and join us as we share and lift up the voices and stories of the refugees from Darfur, Sudan.
