IRF Presents: Refugee Week 2018 @ Islington Assembly Hall

Islington Refugee Forum in partnership with Islington Council would like to cordially invite you all to celebrate Refugee Week.

What is Refugee Week?

Refugee Week 2018 is part of a nation-wide celebration that will be held on 18-24 June 2018 to celebrate and promote the many contributions that refugees have made towards society. This celebration will highlight what the refugee community have brought to the UK, as well as dispel negative stereotypes that the media all too often associates with refugees. The 2018 theme will be '20 Simple Acts' - one for each year of Refugee Week.
