…June 20 is World Refugee Day, the date established by the United Nations in 2000. As Christians we are motivated by the compassion of Christ to do our part as global citizens to welcome refugees. As Lutherans we have a long history in the welcoming and resettlement of refugees and decades of experience on the national and local level. We are grateful that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is one of nine national organizations that resettle refugees on behalf of the United States government.
