What we'll doHelp make our soccer cup a success!
Who can do itAnyone 18+

Soccer represents the community as a connector across language and background. For the sixth annual year, RefugeeConnect will gather hundreds of Cincinnatians and Northern Kentuckians born in the United States and from more than 34 countries of origin for a day of celebration of freedom in honor of World Refugee Day. At the center of the day is a Parade of Nations and community meal featuring five local immigrant chefs with their specialty dishes all containing a unifying ingredient, rice. Join us in this day which is an entry point for many who may feel isolated to build relationships of trust and gain networks through soccer, a shared meal, and community connectivity.
