World Refugee Day Celebrations 2022

WORLD REFUGEE DAY is an opportunity to celebrate the strength and resilience, talents and contributions of refugees in our communities. Join us this year on this UN dedicated day to listen to stories, music, share art and learn about the agencies in our cities who provide services to refugees.

*June 20 – World Refugee Day was established by the United Nations in 2001 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the UN Convention (1951) regarding the status of Refugees.  World Refugee Day is an international day to honour refugees around the globe. It falls each year on June 20 and celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution.
