Candlelight and Prayer Vigil for The Lives Lost In The Shootings
Amnesty International, the office of the Mayor of Allentown, Cedar Crest College, and the Lehigh Valley County Police came together in support of peace in the City of Allentown following several police shootings in Minnesota, Baton Rouge, and Dallas.

Refugee Documentary

Since November 2015, Nick Ogutu has been filming the resettlement process of one refugee family from Congo. It is an ongoing project but preliminary findings already challenge the narrative of refugees not being productive members of the local communities in which they resettle. This project is in need of additional resources for completion and Nick hopes the documentary will be a good resource for schools, colleges, and research institutions. 

Freelance Media: Immigrants & Refugees
Many refugees and immigrants face challenges in navigating the community and locating the resources and services when they arrive in the U.S. Nick created a YouTube channel with short videos of interviews with local leaders and "how-to" videos to navigate the process of acquiring services like library cards, health insurance, or public transportation.
Nyomala Center of Hope
For more than 10 years, Nick has worked with several local communities in Kenya to advance literacy, sports and culture. The Nyomala Soccer team has been very successful and they are the current defending champions of Ombeyi Football tournament.
