The Uyghur boxers of Istanbul

Where do you go to feel a sense of community? On the outskirts of Istanbul, one refugee community gathers to recreate a sense of home and empower themselves at a boxing gym. Listen to how the Uyghur community in Turkey is fighting in and outside of the ring to preserve their culture and identity, and to heal trauma at a time when their very existence is at stake. And hear how boxing has turned into a tool of resilience and connection that's helping Uyghurs forge a new home and future.
