June 20th marks World Refugee Day. For many this day will pass like any other day. However, in the past 5 years the world has witnessed one of the biggest refugee crises since World War II. Millions have been displaced as a result of conflicts around the globe. Since Syria’s civil conflict began, more than half of Syria’s population has been displaced. Over four million women, men, and children have fled the country and are refugees.

The NonProfit Center and Amnesty International invite you to join us on June 21st, from 5:30pm-7:00pm in the Conference Center West on the 2nd floor for a film screening of “8 Borders, 8 Days”, which tells the story of a fierce single mother of two from Syria who decides to risk the lives of the family in a raft rather than staying behind on land. This film is an immersive experience of their eight-day journey to safety.

The screening will be followed by an interactive discussion & opportunity to engage in advocacy that will work to protect the rights of refugees.

The event is free and open to the public on a first come, first served basis. Refreshments will be served.
Only registered users may comment.
Pass a quick registration or authorization.
