1:00PM-1:45PM ET

Event type: Live online

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) invites you to join us for a special conversation to mark World Refugee Day. We are now seeing record numbers of people forced from home—including a massive exodus of people fleeing the war in Ukraine. Governments from Europe to the United States are largely welcoming refugees from Ukraine, showing that it is possible to provide a humane response to people seeking safety.

We are calling for all refugees and asylum seekers to be treated with dignity and humanity—regardless of their race, ethnicity, or nationality. Learn more about the medical care we provide for people on the move, and the physical and mental health issues we witness firsthand.

The event will be moderated by Avril Benoît, MSF-USA's executive director. Speakers to be announced soon.
