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.
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.
