In 2000, the United Nations General Assembly established June 20th as World Refugee Day. Since 2001, people around the world have celebrated the day with events that honor the world’s more than 16 million refugees and raise awareness around refugee issues.

Louisiana Organization for Refugees and Immigrants (LORI) goal is to provide a platform for refugees to share their stories as well bring awareness about the refugee crisis around the world to Baton Rouge residents. This event is free to the public and will have cultural dances, food, and art displays.
