Washington National Cathedral
Welcome to the One Journey Festival. We hope you are looking forward to an inspiring day of music, dance, food, art, and fun. You’ll also be taking part in the first national celebration of refugee talents, stories, and accomplishments – on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral. In this beautiful venue, Festival-goers will meet refugees and their families from around the world and discover ways to get involved in assisting and advocating for refugees globally and locally. One Journey is a grassroots alliance working to shift the conversation about refugees worldwide. We counter hate and fear with compassion, connection, and celebration of the bonds that unite our human family. One Journey’s mission is to inspire people from all background and faiths to engage with each other, build empathy, and make every refugee feel welcome.
The One Journey Festival was created by two American immigrants who want to share their positive, welcoming experiences as newcomers with others. Grassroots volunteers across the metro region from business, non-profits, academia, and multi-cultural communities have worked tirelessly to make this day possible – and the first chapter of an enduring movement. The One Journey Festival will become an annual event and the spark for creating pop-up festivals across the country. We invite you to be part of it.
