World Refugee Day: A State of the Crisis

DESCRIPTION

Never has there been a greater need for tolerance, compassion, and solidarity with people who have lost everything.

DESCRIPTION

Never has there been a greater need for tolerance, compassion, and solidarity with people who have lost everything.

Never has there been a more important time to advocate for shared responsibility within our own communities and to address the fear and xenophobia that are dividing societies. Humanizing the refugee crisis and telling the individual human story–is one way to tackle that fear and indifference.

Join us on June 20th, World Refugee Day, to hear from organizations who are fighting the good fight to help refugees. This event will feature panelists from Jusoor, PARS Equality Center and the IRC who will share their work, and how you can help.

100% of ticket sale proceeds will be donated to causes supporting refugees.
