RefugeeFEST 2010 Planning Begins – Join us!
The UN General Assembly selected June 20th as World Refugee Day in order to honor the strength and contributions of refugees around the world. The event is celebrated annually by refugees and international communities not only to highlight refugee resilience, but give voice to their stories. Since 2002, Tucson refugee service providers have been sponsoring events in celebration of World Refugee Day. Last year’s event featured live performances, arts & crafts, ethnic food, and attracted over 2,000 community members.
Join us to hear their voices and celebrate their stories! The first planning meeting for RefugeeFEST 2010 will be held at the IRC Tucson on Monday, April 12th at 3PM. If you aren’t able to attend but still want to be involved, contact Melissa.Wieters@theIRC.org.
