World Refugee Day at Foster High
School & Pop-Up Open House

World Refugee Day 2023 is an effort to invite the world to see celebrate and honor refugees and immigrants from
all over the world. IRC’s goal is to change the narrative of refugees that is typically portrayed—with refugees telling
their own stories on how they want to be seen or heard, and showing the world their hopes, dreams, and values.
Celebrate with refugee families and welcome them into our community.
