About Us

The Community Refugee Network (CRN) is a nonprofit founded by Nikhil Guddati, Trisha Motupalli, and Colton Moraine which is dedicated to spreading awareness and sharing the stories of refugees. This organization is a product of the current political climate and its’ attitude towards refugees. Upon witnessing the rise in xenophobia towards refugees and immigrants, the three of us knew it was time to take a stand. Because we believe that education is the silver bullet to ignorance and the best way to eradicate hate, we decided to form an organization primarily focused on exposing the public to the unique experiences that refugees and immigrants undergo.
