Commemorating World Refugee Day Press Statement John Kerry Secretary of State Washington, DC June 20, 2014 World Refugee Day is more than a moment marked on a calendar. It is a time to honor the strength and resilience of refugees around the world and renew our determination to support them as they rebuild their lives and communities. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees now counts the number of refugees, asylum-seekers, and internally displaced persons at 51 million. That number is staggering by any measure. It represents children, women, and men from Syria, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and now Iraq, who face death, destruction, and dislocation. For them, daily survival is a gamble. The dreams refugees harbor have special meaning for Americans. Even before our land was a nation, America was a haven for those seeking freedom from persecution, hunger, oppression and war. Today, refugees continue to look to America for relief and opportunity. These refugees, many of whom arrive ha ...
This afternoon, we raised the World Refugee Day flag at City Hall. World Refugee Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2001 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. It is marked globally each year on June 20 to highlight the courage and resilience of refugees and the need for our support.
June 20 is World Refugee Day. Created by the United Nations, it's a day to celebrate the courage of the mothers, fathers, sons and daughters — the men, women and children who are now homeless after escaping violence and persecution. Today, there are 50 million refugees spread across the globe.
World Refugee Day should remind us of the challenges of human migration attributed to war, conflict, famine, and disease. More often than not, women and children are the primary victims. Such is the work of the Kenya Gender-Based Violence Partnership and our work in Western Kenya and South Sudan. We dare not abandon this work or our pledge to come alongside the forgotten and the oppressed.

Update - The Refugee program is in jeopardy. As you may have heard, there has been a large number of unaccompanied minors entering the US. Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is mandated to care for these minor children but do not have they funding from congress to do so. ORR is considering re appropriating $94 million from refugee programs to cover the expenses of these minors. This will affect all current programs and services for newly arrived refugees. ORR Bylaws require them to inform congress that they are re- programming this amount of money. Congress can decide to find money from somewhere else, to cover this so that ORR does not have to take money from resettlement program to assist with the influx of minors Your voice is needed to inform congress to allocate the proper amount of funding to assist with these minor children so that ORR does not have to reprogram funding away from the current refugee resettlement programs and services. More details will follow with information of what you can do . ...

Today is World Refugee Day. Pray with us: God pierce our hearts with your love, Break them open into greater capacity, Break them open, That we might hold more of the world’s suffering and joy, That we might share more of the world’s despair and hope. Lord break our hearts, As we stand in the gap between what is and what could be, Break our hearts open To a largeness that holds the possibility of a better future for all the world’s people. ~ Christine Sine, posted on Godspace.
Today is World Refugee Day. 61 years ago, International Service was born in response to the plight of European refugees, and now we're supporting communities all over the world. Let's spare a thought to those that can't be where they want to be today because of conflict and disaster.
Today, June 20, 2014 join The International Lifeline Fund, The United Nations and countless civic groups around the world as we celebrate World Refugee Day. During its first two years, Lifeline focused most of its attention on refugee advocacy issues. It is in that spirit that we celebrate this day and honor the courage, strength and determination of the women, men and children who are forced to flee their homes under threat of persecution, conflict and violence.
"In 2014, the world has seen the heights to which refugees can rise when given the chance to start a new life in dignity and peace. A former refugee became the first American citizen in a generation to win the Boston Marathon. At the same time the world has been challenged by the ongoing and urgent need to protect the vulnerable fleeing conflicts in Syria, South Sudan, the Congo, Myanmar, and Central Africa. This World Refugee Day, The Episcopal Church honors the proud legacy of our Church's intentional work of welcoming refugees - a ministry that began in 1939 through the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief." -The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate, The Episcopal Church
"On this World Refugee Day, the United States would do well to underscore its commitment to fundamental human rights by recognizing that refugee policy, as with all foreign policy, begins at home," writes Patrick McCormick on GPS.
On World Refugee Day, get to know the people locked in, locked out, and stuck in between. Get it here:
Today is World Refugee Day! The U.S. resettles more refugees than all other countries in the world combined. In 2013, nearly 70,000 refugees from 64 countries found safety and new homes in 186 communities across the United States.
"Every year, on June 20, World Refugee Day is celebrated all over the world. We celebrate it with a sense of commitment and determination to make the world aware of the plight of tens of millions of refugees and Internally Displaced People all over the world. The celebration is not only for refugees but for all of us who are committed to basic human rights. Please participate in this important world event in any way you can." - Dr. Erku Yimer, ECAC Executive Director
