Who are Refugees?

We stand with refugees in communities around the world A refugee is not a type of person. Those experiencing displacement include mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, teachers, artists, leaders, and innovators. They are elderly people keeping traditions alive among the children and young parents in their neighborhoods.

Hope in Conflict: Refugee Children Share their Stories

World Refugee Day (June 20) is an opportunity to remind the world that there are nearly 80 million people who have been forcibly displaced from their homes—leaving behind houses, careers, schools, family, community, and much more. In honor of World Refugee Day, we are sharing stories from refugees, displaced people, and asylum seekers in their own words.
