Two Events in Indy Mark World Refugee Day

"My Home is Your Home: Refugees in Indy" is the theme for a 6-10 p.m. event Friday (20 June) in the Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis.

This year, Indiana expects to welcome more than 900 refugees from Burma alone. These, and other refugees, will be celebrated in a night of food, dancing, fashion, music and storytelling. It's free, and if you would like more information, send an email here.

The following day (21 June), World Refugee Day will be commemorated from 1-5 p.m. in Southport Christian Church, 201 East Epler Avenue, Indianapolis. The afternoon is sponsored by Exodus Refugee Immigration.

Enjoy live music, featuring bands from the Chin and Karen communities, witness the first annual presentation of the Friends of Refugees Award, and experience international cuisine at a pitch-in dinner. For more information, email or call 317:921-0836.
