UNSPOKEN is an annual human rights forum that combines film, art, and a conference into one festival.  The Unspoken Film Festival & Conference is always looking for presenting sponsors as well as additional major supporters. This event providers an opportunity for organization to truly show their commitment to the mission of building community with many cultures, especially to outside visitors attending the events.

World Refugee Day

World Refugee Day is a day to raise awareness about the plight of refugees around the world and to gather support for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. Locally the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees holds a celebration and additional community events to raise awareness and to celebrate the spirit of the individuals who have come to our home communities as refugees. Your support is a commitment to welcome and building community with many cultures. Visit the World Refugee Day sponsorship page for more information.

Running Team

Each year, utilizing community volunteers, a Refugee Running team is organized to participate in the Boilermaker Events (15K, 5K, Walk). Through running the race refugees see the vibrant and welcoming nature of the Utica community. Sponsorship is needed for runner registration, running shoes, and athletic gear.
