Kickoff Date: June 12
World Refugee Day: June 20
Each year, the United Nations promotes a World Refugee Day on June 20 to commemorate the resilience, bravery and strength of refugees worldwide.
Exodus Refugee Immigration will promote a digital campaign a week leading up to World Refugee Day on June 20, from June 12-20. We will share articles, videos, and photos to educate people on the refugee crisis and the benefits of resettlement as well as hear from the community on why they stand with refugees. We hope that you are active participants and take photos and videos using the hashtag #WithRefugees. Please share stories and use this week as a way to spark conversations among your community.
