World Refugee Day: Every Action Counts

In recognition of World Refugee Day and in collaboration with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, this event will feature stories from a variety of perspectives within the refugee realm.

Bear witness to the daily struggle of refugees from a UNHCR field worker; be inspired by a refugee resettled in the United States where s/he joined the fight against COVID-19 in his/her new community; and hear from Chris Boian, UNHCR spokesperson, who can offer additional glimpses of the work to provide dignity, hope, and new beginnings to refugees around the world. Audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions to each of the storytellers during a question and answer session.
