The world joins the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to mark World Refugee Day 2007, on June 20 th .

I'd like to invite you to join with us to honor those who find refuge here and whom we feel privileged to assist with a new lease on life in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Through a series of events sponsored around the state, refugees, organizations, local providers and people concerned with the plight of refugees will gather to think and reflect on the desperate conditions of those less fortunate who languish in camps in various parts of the world. These groups will also celebrate the triumphs of the many men, women and children who have made a successful transition into our vibrant society.

Below is a list of events. Please consider participating in as many as you'd like.
