Now Is the Time to Celebrate Refugees

The Ethiopian Community Development Council, Inc. (ECDC) invites our web neighbors to celebrate refugees with us on June 18th, 19th, and 20th. ECDC is hosting a series of virtual events. Join us for a live panel discussion to hear about the refugee experience, take some time to learn about how to advocate for refugees during COVID-19, and come together virtually to imagine our collective future during this year’s 19th annual WORLD REFUGEE DAY.

Events are free and donations are welcome. Online sign-up is available at:

World Refugee Day was first celebrated on June 20, 2001, which marked the 50th Anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the status and protection of refugees. ECDC’s three-day virtual celebration will honor refugees, raise awareness about refugees and how members of the public can help them, and encourage participants to donate financial support for refugees who are among so many other people adversely affected since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
