2020 Theme: Celebrating the Year of Welcome
This year Refugee Week will be moving online to ensure we can celebrate safely.
Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. Originally celebrated in 1986, Refugee Week coincides with World Refugee Day (20 June).
