World Refugee Day
June 20 is the day the world commemorates the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees. Held every year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee.
In September 2016, global leaders agreed to work towards a Global Compact for refugees in 2018 where all parts of society stand together #WithRefugees and do their fair share instead of leaving individual states to bear the burden of mass forced displacement.
You can call on these governments to keep their promise by signing the #WithRefugees petition. It asks them to make sure:
- Every refugee child gets an education
- Every refugee family has somewhere safe to live
- Every refugee can work or learn new skills to support their families.
In a world where one in every 113 people have been forced to flee their homes because of war or persecution it’s vital we demonstrate the global public stands #WithRefugees.
