Anaheim City Council Members Kris Murray and Jordan Brandman provided opening remarks and Senator Janet Nguyen shared her story growing up as a refugee. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez provided the keynote address.
In 2001, the United Nations officially dedicated June 20th to be recognized as World Refugee Day. This year marked the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
