Dear friends:

This Saturday, June 20th we celebrate World Refugee Day around the world.

This is a time to recognize the resilience, strength and courage of the more than 70 million forcibly displaced people worldwide.

This has been a challenging year for everyone, and it is even more so for vulnerable displaced populations.

While we may not be able this year to participate in World Refugee Day celebrations in person, there are some wonderful events taking place online.

We encourage everyone to take a look at the following events and join some of these World Refugee Day celebrations.

As well, RSTP will be sharing World Refugee Day events on social media all week.
