***BACKGROUND INFO ABOUT WORLD REFUGEE DAY***

June 20 is the day the world commemorates the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees. Held every year, World Refugee Day is dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees throughout the world. The annual commemoration is marked by a variety of different events, in more than 100 countries, across the World.
In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees.
To do this, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency launched the #WithRefugees petition in June 2016 to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.
This year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to Take a step #WithRefugees; and show support for families forced to flee, due to war, conflict and persecution.
