UCLG Africa invites is members and partners’ to join also the call for public support to #WithRefugees Coalition campaign.

In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, believes now is the time to show world leaders that the global public stands #WithRefugees and that concrete solutions need to be found to the global refugee crisis.

To demonstrate this solidarity and encourage governments into action, UNHCR launched the #WithRefugees campaign and petition in 2016. On June 20th, World Refugee Day, UNHCR commemorates the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of families forced to flee their homes. This year, World Refugee Day is also a key opportunity for the public to express their support by signing the petition

Your signature will encourage decision makers to:

  • Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
  • Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
  • Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to support their families.

The campaign continues until a global compact for refugees is adopted in 2018. Add your name to show the world you stand #WithRefugees.
