Parade Of Nations

June 09, 2009 by Sheila
Be there June 19 at 6pm when the Parade of Nations kicks off the evening entertainment during the first day of the Celebrate Lincoln International Festival. 
 
Like the Parade of Nations featured in the Olympic Games, Celebrate Lincoln’s Parade of Nations introduces the festival’s audience to the nations and cultures that shape our community.
 

The goal of the Parade of Nations is to raise awareness and appreciation of the diversity of our community through a parade including the flags and clothing of those nations represented in our population.

To learn more about Celebrate Lincoln, see the Culturalistings June 4 blog post.

World Refugee Day

June 04, 2009 by Sheila

World Refugee Day, June 20, is an international holiday that was initiated in 2000 by the United Nations General Assembly. It serves as reminder to educate ourselves about the plight of 31.5 million persons worldwide which UNHCR identifies as “persons of concern.” They include refugees, victims of human trafficking, asylum seekers, internally displaced and other stateless persons.

A free celebration of World Refugee Day will be held at Benson High School, 5120 Maple Street, in Omaha Nebraska, on June 20 from 10am-4pm. The event will include international music, dance and crafts, as well as a job fair and health screening.
