Join the Coalition of Refugee Service Agencies (CRSA) and Refuge Coffee Co. as we honor the contributions refugees make to our communities for World Refugee Day 2017!
Enjoy delicious coffee and family-friendly activities as you meet your neighbors, hear thoughts, stories and experiences from special guest speakers, and take part in a huge group photo to show just how much #GALovesRefugees!
Now, more than ever, it’s important to commemorate the incredible strength and resilience of the refugee community, and to recognize the invaluable contributions that they bring to our state.
We’ll finish up just in time for lunch, so you can head off to explore the diverse cuisine that Clarkston has to offer, while supporting local refugee and immigrant owned businesses! There’s something for everyone with Thai, Vietnamese, Burmese, Nepalese, Ethiopian, and Eritrean cuisine all within walking distance. Restaurant information and maps will be provided.
Please take a moment to RSVP on Facebook and do not forget to share the event with your friends and neighbors.
Additionally on Tuesday, June 13, at 9am, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners, led by District 4 Commissioner Steve Bradshaw, will present a proclamation officially making June 20 “World Refugee Day” in DeKalb County. This will take place in the Maloof Auditorium in Decatur. All are welcome to attend.
Get the T-Shirt and Show the World – GA Loves Refugees
Finally you are coming to the event, now get the t-shirt!
CRSA’s “GA Loves Refugees” t-shirts were a huge hit at our New Americans Celebration, so now they’re back by popular demand for World Refugee Day.
Shirts are available for order online through June 11 and can be shipped or picked up at the June 17 event. Be sure to grab yours early and remind your friends to get them, too!
CRSA will also have “GA Loves Refugees” lapel pins that will be available for $5 each at the event. Be sure to bring some cash and get one for all your loved ones so they can show their support for welcoming refugees.
