In a powerful new video for the United Nations Refugee Agency, Cate Blanchett and the likes of Stanley Tucci, Keira Knightley, and Chiwetel Ejiofor come together to recite “What They Took with Them,” a poem written by Jenifer Toksvig about displaced population around the world.
The video invites people to sign the #WithRefugees petition, which will be presented at the UN General Assembly on September 19.
The petition is aimed at world leaders and their governments to help refugees and their children find housing, and receive education and employment opportunities.
The video also features pictures from Brian Sokol’s project, “The Most Important Thing,” and firsthand accounts by the refugees he photographed.
