World Refugee Day

Refugees that are waving American flags

Fleeing torture, violence, and persecution, refugees come to the United States for a better life. On World Refugee Day, these 19 individuals from 12 countries walked into New York City’s Central Park as refugees, and walked out as new American citizens. In this country, we say: Refugees Welcome.
