Refugee 613 invites everyone to #ShowYourWelcome on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! #ShowYourWelcome is a social media campaign to showcase the many different stories of Ottawa welcomers who go out of their way to help refugee newcomers feel at home in our town.Check out the daily posts and share your own story, big or small! Take a photo and add the #ShowYourWelcome hashtage and it will be shared. This is a way for the whole city to know how many people stepped up to support refugees and to encourage others to find their own pathway to welcoming. #ShowYourWelcome launches on World Refugee Day with a Human Library at the Global Centre for Pluralism, and continues for 30 days.Hashtags: #ShowYourWelcome, #MontreTonAccueil, #WOW18, #SAO18, #Ottawa and #CndImm.
