Cities across Canada are embracing refugees and becoming more connected because refugees are here, becoming colleagues, neighbours, and friends. At a time when conflict and persecution is uprooting millions of people worldwide, Canadian cities need to continue their support for refugees.
UNHCR’s #WithRefugees campaign invites cities and local authorities who are working to promote inclusion, support refugees and bring communities together to sign a statement of solidarity #WithRefugees.
Please join us today by persuading your city to join with the UN Refugee Agency. Ask your mayor to officially stand with refugees and cities across the world by signing the UNHCR Statement of Solidarity with Refugees. Tell your city you stand #WithRefugees.
