New Blue Key Campaign Addresses Growing World Displacement Crisis

December 1, 2010 - Spearheading a new movement in social activism, the United States Association for UNHCR (USA for UNHCR) today launched the Blue Key Campaign — the first U.S. based initiative to channel the energy of individual citizens to speak out for refugees. The campaign aims to provide a broadened base of support for the leading organization safeguarding the rights and well-being of displaced people around the world – the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Mounted in response to a humanitarian displacement crisis that is unprecedented in size, the Blue Key Campaign introduces a new icon – a key in the UN blue color – to inspire the public to unlock the door to a better future for the more than 43 million forcibly displaced people worldwide. Americans who proudly display the new Blue Key will join a community of “Keyholders” working with noted celebrities and political leaders around the country to champion the refugee cause. {read rest}
