Description:

Join us for a day of honoring Chicago's refugee community!

This annual event kicks off with a soccer tournament that begins at 9 am and continues throughout the day.
Explore new foods, many of which will be prepared by members of the refugee community, as they hope to share some of their favorite things with friends. Music from around the world will entertain guests and give them another glimpse at the many ways Chicago's diverse refugee community contributes to our culture.

This event could not be complete without our annual One Human Family rally and march where we come together in support of human rights and in recognition that we are all in this together, as one family.

Come as a way to show your support for this growing community, meet new people, and learn more about refugees! We can't wait to make a big show for Chicago's 15th Year Celebrating World Refugee Day!
