World Refugee Day

“The Story of a Refugee Family from the Middle East” (Street Art), Montreal, April 2019

Starting in 2017, Project Welcome has invited libraries to commemorate World Refugee Day, annually taking place on June 20th.  This international observance honors the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict and violence. The Mortenson Center for International Library Programs and the American Library Association (ALA) have collaborated to promote World Refugee Day at/by the library.  See the pages created for specific years:
