ABOUT THE EVENT
The Center for Refugee Services’ World Refugee Day commemoration is an opportunity to acknowledge the plight of refugees everywhere. The global refugee crisis is at historic proportions: an all-time high of 25.9 million refugees worldwide.
This year's theme is "Blowin in the Wind." The theme is about yearning for a solution, for an answer to the hardships people face and the social injustice that leads to people fleeing their homes for safer haven.
This event is a chance for people everywhere to come together to gain insights into the refugee situation, listen to first hand accounts of the journeys of refugees in San Antonio and to mobilize the community to help our newest neighbors.
