The 17th Annual New York Circle takes place at a critical time as more than 70.8 million people have been forced to flee their homelands due to conflict, persecution, and extreme climate-related disasters.

Refugees International’s New York Circle brings together over 300 people to honor individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and commitment protecting the rights and well-being of refugees and others who have been forcibly displaced around the world.

Each year, Refugees International presents the Exceptional Service Award to honor the notable work of journalists, activists, and others whose service has an indelible impact on the lives of the most vulnerable women, men, and children around the world – the very people for whom Refugees International advocates.
