World Refugee Day, observed annually on 20 June, honours the strength and resilience of those who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict, violence, persecution, or natural disasters. With over 114 million people displaced worldwide, it is imperative that we, as a global community, come together in solidarity with the refugees and others displaced people and advocate for their fundamental human rights as well as support their journey towards a better future.

The upcoming virtual event, “Welcoming the Other,” will convene diverse religious and faith leaders, women of faith, youth, and key stakeholders to discuss advocacy efforts, meaningful participation of displaced communities in decision-making and peacebuilding processes, and the empowerment women and youth within these communities.

Join us in this important dialogue and to stand in solidarity with refugees and other forcibly displaced communities.
