World Refugee Day Rally at the White House

Lafayette Park
Washington, DC
United States
June 20, 2017,
5:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Please join us for a rally in front of the White House on World Refugee Day, June 20th at 5 PM, to tell the Trump Administration that we support refugees. Our message is clear—“No hate. No Fear. Refugees are welcome here.” 

Each year, communities around the world mark World Refugee Day on June 20th by celebrating the benefits that refugees bring to our communities. This year, we will also use the occasion to denounce the discriminatory policies of the Trump Administration and urge our elected officials to join us in supporting refugees here in the U.S. as well as those abroad. As we witness the largest refugee crisis in recorded history, with over 65 million people displaced around the world, we urge the President and Congress to commit to resettling at least 75,000 refugees in 2018.

Faith communities, advocacy groups, business leaders, legal and security experts, and other allies will join immigrants and refugees at the White House to share how their communities support refugees and attest to the United States’ proud tradition of welcoming and protecting refugees.
