SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The #SheBelongs movement for gender and racial equity and inclusion through the world's sport of football (soccer) continues to grow as screenings of its new movie roll out across America.

After a sold-out screening in Boise, Idaho last week Refugee Soccer, the social impact company that operates #SheBelongs, is thrilled to announce new screenings in its home state of Utah and in Washington, DC this week! Each screening features appearances by some of the inaugural 2023 Team members in a talkback session with the audiences after the film.

#SheBelongs: The Movie captures the journey of belonging for 22 young female soccer players from Utah, creating a team of 11 refugees & 11 non-refugees, as they take their message of equality and inclusion to the 2023 Women's World Cup in New Zealand. Be a part of their 16-day trip interacting with world leaders and soccer legends, forming strong friendships with girls just like them on three continents, and making deep, life-long bonds built around soccer and belonging.

Adam Miles, the creator of #SheBelongs, said: "It is so gratifying to feel the palpable enthusiasm from the audiences who've seen the film in person so far. These beautiful reactions only solidify the path we are on and deepen the energy and commitment we bring to this movement, and my amazing team is inspired to continually broaden the reach of #SheBelongs globally. Our 2025 Global Cup to be held in Madrid, Spain next Spring will do just that. And sharing our film with thousands, which demonstrates the viability and impact of #SheBelongs, is how we catalyze and sustain further growth."

About Refugee Soccer
Refugee Soccer was formally established in 2016 as a dedicated program under the 501(c)(3) entity known as Bridges To America, Inc. based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Bridges To America was started in 2005 originally to reunite African families separated by war, famine, and poverty. Soccer became a key part of Bridges’ efforts around 2013 as Founder and Executive Director, Adam Miles, started to involve his four children in the effort. His then 13-year-old daughter, Kylie, a goalkeeper, played a fundamental role in raising funds to deliver 100 soccer balls to kids living in rural villages in Ghana, West Africa through the Bridges’ program known as Save-A-Thon For Africa. This effort was the genesis of Refugee Soccer.

Today, the mission of Refugee Soccer is to connect refugee and established communities through soccer around the world. Refugee Soccer was formed to create and support solutions that combat the tremendous losses of productivity, progress, and hope that result from the massive displacement occurring in the world at historically high levels. Soccer is our secret weapon.
