#WithRefugees Campaign

In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, believes now is the time to show world leaders that the global public stands #WithRefugees. To do this, we will launch our #WithRefugees petition in June to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.

On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20th, we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. This year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee.

By signing the #WithRefugees petition, people from across the globe can call on governments to work together and do their fair share for refugees.

The #WithRefugees petition was be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly on September 19. The petition asks governments to:

• Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
• Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
• Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.

The campaign continues until a global compact for refugees is signed in 2018. Add your name to the petition to show that the world stands #WithRefugees.
