20th June is World Refugee Day
The United Nations declared June 20, World Refugee day. The Sunday before (14 June 2020) or immediately following (21 June 2020) is dedicated as Refugee Sunday to stand by all these people on the run. To help you to organise Refugee Sunday in your own church or congregation, a variety of resources are available.
The Peace Between film is an excellent tool for honest reflection and discussion about how we all feel about displaced people in our communities. The film subtitles and accompanying discussion guide are available in about 20 different languages!
