World Refugee Day Celebrations 2014
World Refugee Day
World Refugee Day is held every year on June 20. It is a special day when the world takes time to recognize the resilience of forcibly displaced people throughout the world.
For World Refugee Day 2014, eight organizations, Amnesty International, the Canadian Red Cross, the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture, Christie Refugee Welcome Centre, COSTI, Sojourn House, Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office and UNHCR will be holding a celebration at the Daniels Spectrum Artscape Lounge and Aki Studio with entertainment, food and a cash bar. Refugees will be telling their stories throughout the evening.
Join us to celebrate with them and with all refugees on this special day.
The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture is held annually on the 26th of June to speak out against the crime of torture and to honour and support victims and survivors throughout the word.
