World Refugee Day Actions and Advocacy
Wednesday, June 20 is World Refugee Day, a day when we honor the courage and resilience of refugees, recognizing the hardships they have faced, the new lives they have created, and the positive impact they have on our communities. Historically, the United States has been a leader in protecting and resettling refugees. However, with global need at its highest, the Trump administration has reversed our nation's traditional role in welcoming people seeking freedom, safety and refuge.
Learn more about the state of play for refugee resettlement and how we can leverage World Refugee Day for advocacy and action by listening to the We Are All America webinar (starts at 2:42), which aired May 24, 2018. Click here for the recording.
