World Refugee Day 2020

Click Here to watch the World Refugee Day 2020 Livestream


We come together at 12 p.m., Saturday, June 20, as East Tennessee communities to celebrate World Refugee Day: Together at Home. Thanks to our partners, volunteers and wonderful refugee community, you will have the chance to experience the local diversity and contributions refugees make in a unique way. There will be client stories, language lessons, fashion and music. Learn to make a dish with a Colombian chef, take a Rwandan drumming lesson, watch a movie or read a book documenting the refugee experience, advocate for refugees locally and nationally, and support refugee resettlement happening right now in Knoxville and Chattanooga. And of course—We. Must. Dance. All from the comfort of your home. Together.

Ready to celebrate?
