June 20 is World Refugee Day! As the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees website states,
"World Refugee Day is an international day designated by the United Nations to honour refugees around the globe. It falls each year on June 20 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."
This World Refugee Day, in order to raise awareness about the fundamental right to safety for everyone forced to flee, USA for UNHCR is launching the #SafetyForAll campaign. It asks YOU to share a person or item that makes you feel safe on social media using the hashtag #SafetyForAll to help teach others about the global refugee crisis and the right of everyone, everywhere to seek safety.
