    • Choose a book from the USA for UNHCR Book List and read it as a chapter
    • Print and distribute #WithRefugees World Refugee Day 2018 Bookmarks 
    • Leave a book told by a refugee or about refugee stories in your community, with a note from your chapter about World Refugee Day and UNA-USA

3. Join the #WorldRefugeeDay Twitter Chat

My_Post_2

  • Join a global online conversation about advancing the agency and empowerment of refugees around the world on June 20, 2018 from 11 AM — 12 PM EST. Together, we will explore how humanitarian assistance and development can better position refugees to rebuild their lives.
  • The Twitter chat will follow a simple Q&A format with Women’s Refugee Commission (@wrcommission) tweeting numbered questions for individuals and organizations to respond. Given that the hashtag will receive considerable traffic outside of the chat in that hour (much less the day), we ask that you format your answers beginning with “A” and their corresponding question number (ex: A1, A2, A3), followed by #WorldRefugeeDay, in order to participate in the chat effectively.

ABOUT ADOPT-A-FUTURE


An unprecedented 65.6 million people have been forced to flee their homes in search of refuge because of conflict and persecution. Tragically, more than half of the world’s refugees are children, and only 61 percent are in primary school – far lower than the global average of 91 percent. The United Nations Association of the USA, in tandem with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and its fundraising arm USA for UNHCR, is working to prevent a lost generation by giving refugee children the education they deserve to build a better future.
