Action: World Refugee Day
In the United States, 2008 is an election year. For the international refugee community, 2008 is the year of Protection. In one week, on June 20th, we celebrate World Refugee Day, and kick-off a year focused on the theme of protection: \prə-ˈtekt\ to cover or shield from exposure, injury, damage, or destruction. We, as Global Citizens, need to remind our leaders of our Responsibility to Protect. Remind President Bush of his responsibility to ensure full deployment of a full UNAMID force or call 1-800 GENOCIDE. Join STAND‘s Presidential Legacy Campaign.
