World Refugee Day 2021

June 20th is World Refugee Day. Today we celebrate the richness that refugees bring to our community and celebrate the partners that help refugees find their new home in Albuquerque. 

Below we share stories of refugees' stories of how they found resources and hope by community partners in Albuquerque. Also below is a World Refugee Day Celebration Video from Mayor Tim Keller, Office of Equity and Inclusion Director Michelle Melendez and other City and community leaders. 


Remember, in Albuquerque refugees are welcomed.
