2nd Annual World Refugee Day
LASR hosted its 2nd Annual World Refugee day Celebration on June 24th, 2017 at 3:30pm at the LSU Student Union ballroom (Royal Cotillion). The event was immediately followed by a potluck dinner at the International Cultural Center (ICC) located on Dalrymple drive, LSU campus. The purpose of the World Refugee Day celebration was to raise awareness of the millions of refugees all around the world.
As part of the event, three (3) refugees shared their stories of the challenges they went through and ongoing war conflicts in their respective countries of origin. Recognition of cultural diversity and experiences brought by refugees in particular and immigrants in general was at the core of this celebration.
