The City of Brotherly Love Shows Support on World Refugee Day


On June 20th, NSC, along with fellow members of the Philadelphia Regional Refugee Providers Collaborative (PRRPC), hosted a reception and press conference with Mayor Kenny and the Office of Immigrant Affairs in honor of World Refugee Day. This commemorative day, recognized by the United Nations High Commission on Refugees, brought awareness to the over 65 million refugees and displaced people worldwide. The refugees, most having arrived to Philadelphia within the past six months, gathered at City Hall and were welcomed as the newest members of Phiadelphia by Mayor Kenny, in line with the cities' values of diversity and hospitality.
