The United Nations defines a refugee as “people who have fled war, violence, conflict or persecution and have crossed an international border to find safety in another country.”
Today we recognize the hundreds of thousands of refugees and displaced people due to the decades long Israeli-Palstinian conflict. Everyone deserves the right to safety, peace, and self-determination.
