This coming Saturday, June 20th, is World Refugee Day.
Organizations in many cities will be hosting events for World Refugee Day, and these events could be a great opportunity to talk to people about The List Project. I will personally be attending an event in Austin with one of our new volunteers and hopefully some TLP Iraqis from both Austin and San Antonio.
While there is no centralized location for all of the World Refugee Day events in the United States, a good place to start asking questions would be with your local resettlement agency. Many of the resettlement agencies either coordinate or sponsor some type of annual event. The IRC currently had events scheduled in Baltimore, Boise, Charlottesville, Phoenix, San Diego, San Jose, Washington DC and Tucson.

I always like to carry a few in my vehicle, because I never know when I might get an opportunity to share the TLP story with somebody!
