You are invited to this free event to launch the Waterloo Region’s community celebration of World Refugee Day – a day to recognize the resilient newcomers who are making Waterloo Region home.
The 2019 WRD Awards of Distinction will be presented to outstanding members of the local community with lived refugee experience, and volunteers dedicated to working with refugees, who have contributed to making Waterloo Region a better place.
Join us for refreshments and beverages, as well as performances and installations by the YMCA Newcomer Youth Drama group, the Gatako singers, Lovemyhood, the Waterloo Public Library and others. The event will also feature an art exhibit inspired by the refugee journey.
When: Sunday, June 9th at 1pm – 3pm
