Singing Bird Center - 1510 46th Ave. Rock Island, Il. 61201
Come out in support of refugees for World Refugee Day at the Singing Bird Center at Black Hawk State park.

The Walk: 11am-12

"Walk for Freedom" will recognize refugees who have made the journey to a safe country, pray with those refugees who are on the journey, and honor those refugees who have lost their life because the journey to freedom was too tough. Join us as we walk together a little over a mile on some beautiful hiking trails complements of Black Hawk State Park while learning about refugees and some of their struggles.
Want to have an even more realistic refugee experience? Get a group of people to walk with you. We will be adding some more challenges to this year's walk and some challenges will only be able to get accomplished when pulling together with others.

Cultural Festival: 12-2pm

The cultural festival will celebrate the hope, freedom, and survival while introducing refugees to locals from the community. Last year we had a number of ethnic dances and this year we plan on making it even better! All are welcome, so come out and enjoy the celebration. Games for all ages and food will be included!
