For 2023 World Refugee Day, we are inviting the community to join us at the City Foundry for a day-long celebration! Together we will honor the resilience of refugees, as we build empathy and understanding for their journeys across the community at large. This event will include a variety of cultural performances on an outdoor stage alongside a multicultural market to shop for international vendors and local favorites alike.
About World Refugee Day (via UNHCR)
World Refugee Day is an international day designated by the United Nations to honor refugees around the globe. It falls each year on 20 June and celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution.
World Refugee Day is an occasion to build empathy and understanding for their plight and to recognize their resilience in rebuilding their lives.
