World Refugee Day is TODAY!

June 20th is World Refugee Day – a time when we acknowledge the overwhelming adversity faced by the more than 68 million displaced people worldwide.  At LIRS,  it is our prerogative that these vulnerable individuals are protected, embraced, and empowered in a world of just and welcoming communities. 

Join us this week in celebrating the incredible resilience and contributions of refugees in America – and remembering those overseas who look to us for protection. 

Explore the interactive page on the LIRS Website to learn more about refugees, to advocate for compassionate policy solutions, to share and uplift their voices and to support our work with this vulnerable community.
