Current events and politics junkies who emigrated to Newsvine en masse after the closing of the forums at the New York Times.

About, Bylaws, Other Information

The Refugees are a community of political and current events junkies who met over a number of years at the now-defunct public fora at the New York Times.

Our personalities, ideologies, interests and expertise are widely diverse, but we love to think, read, write, converse and argue about whatever is on our minds--Recipes or Daffodils, from the Green Zone in Baghdad to the Green Monster at Fenway Park.
