Angelina Jolie is asking the public to remember those who have been displaced in a new video for World Refugee Day 2010.

"Having a home, a place we belong, a place we feel safe, is something most of us take for granted. Yet, those who flee from conflict and persecution, no longer have their homes and it will be years before they can even return. In fact, many may never go home again," the 35-year-old actress said in the video posted on the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees website.

"Please remember the millions of people around the world forced from their homes," she continued in the clip. "Because the only hope of return is to not be forgotten."

In 2009, Angelina, who has worked as a United Nations goodwill ambassador since 2001, attended a World Refugee Day Event in Washington D.C. with CNN's Anderson Cooper.
