World Refugee Day
On World Refugee Day 2018, be part of an evening to commemorate the strength, courage and resilience of those displaced from their homes. Speakers from CASA de Maryland, Lutheran Social Services, International Rescue Committee, and other local organizations committed to the cause will be sharing information about the services they offer and help you to learn how you can get involved with the cause.
Event attendees will meet the artists of the exhibit, “Uprooted: The Art of Refugees,” view their artwork and hear their individual stories and personal journeys.
Enjoy live music and refreshments while learning about what services our community offers refugees and how you can play a role.
According to the UN Refugee Agency, there are an estimated 65.6 million refugees worldwide, making this the highest level ever on record. This event invites the public to recognize the state of the world and the current crisis of immigration and migration.
