Our mission: World Refugee Day Chicago is an event-based organization that seeks to celebrate and uplift refugees while creating meaningful relationships across local communities.
Our vision: We imagine a future where inclusivity and unity embrace our communities, where refugees, asylees, and immigrants are celebrated in all their fullness.
World Refugee Day is officially June 20, but we typically celebrate it on the Saturday closest to the holiday. We regret that WRD and Juneteenth fall on the same weekend, as we'd love to celebrate both! Nonetheless, we stand with our Black neighbors, refugee or not, and rejoice at the freedom Juneteenth brought formerly enslaved Americans as well as the home that has been created for refugees in Chicago more recently.
