World Refugee Day
Refugees are Courageous
Every World Refugee Day, we celebrate the contributions of refugees around the world. This year, we are proud to honor the courage of refugee artists who use their creativity to connect and heal—bringing people closer together. Through their painting, their dance and their song, these inspiring artists open a door into their world and show us who they are beyond the label of refugee.
Explore five ways you can honor that courage, by taking action for refugees around the world:
5. Get involved in your community
