In honor of the 70,000 refugees living in the Houston area, we invite you to join the Houston Refugee Consortium, in collaboration with the City of Houston, in celebrating World Refugee Day 2016! This free event will honor former refugees who have made a positive impact on the City of Houston and will feature stories from former refugees who have either just arrived or have been in Houston for decades.
Come hear five former refugees tell true, personal tales about culture shock, communication barriers and their experiences as newcomers in America, and experience cultural music and dance.
The World Refugee Day Reception and Nonprofit Fair will take place before the stage event from 1pm - 3pm, admission is included with your World Refugee Day ticket! Come mingle with refugee resettlement and service organizations to talk about the work they do and how you can get involved. There will also be free food from around the world! The stage performance will begin promptly at 3pm.
