Tucson is home to more than 11,000 refugees representing close to 100 different countries. Each individual has an amazing story to tell and brings with them a rich and vibrant cultural background. World Refugee Day Tucson 2015 celebrates the lives and cultures of refugees and the great benefit they bring to the Tucson community. Each year, people around the world celebrate the journey and contributions of refugees by joining the United Nations for World Refugee Day. Tucson, being a cultural hub, is the perfect location to hold such a celebration.
