World Refugee Day of Service
June 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
In conjunction with World Refugee Day, members of the Burmese American Community Institute (BACI), along with more than 80 young scholars and mentors, celebrated the resilience, courage, and contributions of refugees around the world by performing volunteer service at Indianapolis Parks and Recreation’s Indy Urban Acres Farm.
The World Refugee Day celebration in Indianapolis is possible through a unique partnership between the BACI and the Indianapolis Parks Foundation, which has served as a project site for the past eight years. Many organizations in Indiana have been part of this project; Center for Interfaith Cooperation (CIC) AmeriCorps, COIN, and Teen works participated this year.
