World Refugee Day 2022: Resilience, Strength, Courage

World Refugee Day is on Monday June 20. THE MOST BASIC OF HUMAN RIGHTS is the RIGHT to live safely, openly and freely in one’s OWN COUNTRY… No one wants to be forced out of their home or country.

World Refugee Day is an international day organized every year on 20 June by the United Nations. It is designed to celebrate and honor refugees from around the world. The day was first established on 20 June 2001, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.
TODAY we have reached a catastrophic milestone where the numbers of people forcibly displaced by war, climate, famine and violence, gender based, and anti-LGBTQI has reached over 100 MILLION people.
Today we acknowledge the strength, courage and resilience of ALL refugees.
LGBTQI refugees are fleeing criminalizing laws, including long prison terms and death penalties, which give license to extreme violence by non- state actors. The resources are few and far between. The hope for pathways to freedom, few!
World Refugee Day is an occasion to build understanding, to recognize resilience and to embrace and welcome…

African Human Rights Coalition serves as an imperative bridge, guiding light and partner for LGBTQI displaced people, who have suffered persecution through criminalizing laws, discrimination and brutal violence- by community, family, friends and governments, alike.
Many refugee receiving countries are hostile toward LGBTQI refugees, requiring safe shelter even within the protection systems. The work of African Human Rights Coalition is critical to such gaps.
