    On June 20, Welcome Dayton and Miami Valley Career Technology Center's Aspire Program hosted a World Refugee Day celebration. World Refugee Day, observed on June 20 each year, is a day designated by the United Nations to celebrate the courage and resilience of refugees worldwide and to raise awareness about the situations refugees face. Refugee groups from the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America shared food, fashion, and folk-tales to the Dayton community. The event also included a community resource fair and the opportunity for attendees to display signs showing why they support refugees. Over 135 people came to honor the courage, strength, and determination of refugees. Several refugees spoke about their journey to Dayton and helped give insight about their cultures and struggles to the wider community.
