“I have celebrated this day every year for 20 years with refugees in different countries. I’ve never been more concerned about the situation of displaced people in the world than I am today,” Angelina Jolie said at the ceremony.

The actress noted that states are not doing enough for both the refugees themselves and the countries that host them.
