World Refugee Day Events in the USA


Subscribe to email alerts for World Refugee Day 2013!

We're busy planning a World Refugee Day celebration for June 20th. We'll update the information here and through our email alerts as soon as it becomes available... But anyone, anywhere can honor refugees on this day.

Now's the time to get started: Plan a World Refugee Day celebration in your community!

There are many different types of fundraisers or events you can organize. Some ideas involve a single person encouraging friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to make a donation. Others are designed for a group, such as a classroom, office or sports team, to do together. 

Your fundraiser can be big or small, anywhere from a public concert to an intimate dinner party with friends. No matter what you choose to do, remember that USA for UNHCR is behind you, ready to answer questions and provide materials.

If you are planning a World Refugee Day event in the United States and would like the information listed here, please post the following details in the comments so that we may include events from around the country on this page:

  • Your name or your group/organization's name
  • Event date and time
  • Location
  • A short description 
  • A link to learn more
