June 20 is World Refugee Day

#StepWithRefugees World Refugee Day | Immigration Lawyer Mario Godoy | Immigration Simplified

On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20th and established by the United Nations, we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. This year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee their homes.


Every year, refugees travel 2,000,000 km every year to find safety. The UN Refugee Agency is challenging us to match their kilometers in solidarity. Join the #StepWithRefugees challenge and walk, run, dance, swim 1 km/mile or take any step with refugees.


The UN Refugee Agency launched the #WithRefugees petition in June 2016 to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.

If you are a refugee living in the United States, you must apply for permanent residency status 1 year after you are admitted to the United States as a refugee.
