A message from LAO President & CEO on World Refugee Day

On June 20, World Refugee Day, we pay tribute to the courage, strength and determination of those forced to flee their homelands.

Through a series of consultations with clients and staff, LAO refugee and immigration lawyers, and many of the community organizations that provide services to refugees, we have heard not only about the challenges in meeting the needs of our clients, but also the great commitment to providing access to justice for this particularly vulnerable group.

On World Refugee Day, I would like to take the time to thank all of you who provide services to refugees.

David Field
President & CEO
