“Join us for our first major event in recognition of International World Refugee Day.

Meet: Representatives from local, national, and international agencies providing legal services and humanitarian aid to refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants. Also meet artisans who create hand-crafted unique items to support refugees.

Learn: Hear from national experts about the global refugee crisis. Hear from locally resettled refugees and asylum seekers. Find out how we can take local action to help.

Taste: Food catered by the Tiyya Foundation’s Flavors from Afar: refugees who have formed a social enterprise catering company.

Feel: Imagine what it is like to make the harrowing journey across the sea to safety in a tiny raft, as millions of refugees have done, through a live interactive installation.

Listen: Music performed by local refugee artists
