‘Chalk Your Walk’ for annual World Refugee Day on June 20

Criterion staff report

June 20 is World Refugee Day. This annual observation celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution.

In honor of this day, the archdiocesan Catholic Charities Refugee and Immigrant Services invites all to show support for refugees by spreading sidewalk chalk messages of solidarity, support and celebration at your home, parish, school or business. Share photos of the messages to social media with the hashtags #CCIWRD or #ArchIndyWRD.

Message ideas include:

  • Love your neighbor as yourself;
  • Refugees welcome;
  • We want peace; and
  • We welcome refugees.
