Solidarity in the Hostile Environment: what can we do?
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
This one day event provides an opportunity to learn more about how our asylum system works and how the hostile environment affects those caught up in it. What has happened to justice and compassion and how can we advocate for systems based on these principles? We will explore ways of standing with those seeking sanctuary and supporting one another in our concern. There will be opportunities for discussion in small groups, reflection, hearing from those affected by the hostile environment and taking part in workshops.
This event is organised in partnership with the Quaker Asylum and Refugee Network which works to change the way that refugees and asylum seekers (whether recognized under the UN Convention on the Status of Refugees or not) are treated and to ensure that justice and compassion are the guiding principles. There will be a range of presenters and facilitators. http://qarn.org.uk/
