World Refugee Day is a great way to experience how multicultural populations have made America a stronger and brighter nation. Our refugee neighbors bring with them diversity of ideas, traditions, skills, and food. Within the refugee communities of Syracuse, amazing stories of survival are realized and flourish every day. Syracuse has a proud heritage of humanitarian service and activism. “Thinking globally acting locally,” is only successful with service and community engagement. In addition to learning more about the refugee communities in Syracuse, event participants can learn how to get involved and support refugee resettlement initiatives in our local community.

The event coordinating organizations in 2013 were: InterFaith Works of Central New York, Catholic Charities of Onondaga County, Northside Up, Syracuse City School District, and Hopeprint, Inc..
