The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees “is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.”
Hood will appear on the cover of Relix next along with the Drive-By Truckers. The group is set to release two albums and a film next year.
