The Dane County Refugee Network invites you to join us throughout the month of June to learn more about three significant refugee populations living in Dane County (Madison):  the Bhutanese, Iraqis, and Hmong.  These events are organized to commemorate World Refugee Day, an internationally recognized day of awareness that takes place every year on June 20th.  All events are free and open to the public.
