World Refugee Day: June 20, 2019

  • Observed on June 20 each year to raise awareness of the situation of refugees throughout the world. 
  • In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees.
  • To do this, the UN Refugee Agency launched the#WithRefugees petition in June 2016 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.
