June 7, 6pm-8pm
Cafe Fantastico Specialty Coffees, 965 Kings Rd.
Are you an immigrant, refugee, migrant or just curious? Come engage in discussion on migrant justice issues. Hear from guest speakers on issues including racism and anti-migrant sentiment, education and skills transfer for newcomers, and why citizenship is a loaded word.
Join CVYC in sharing experiences, challenging the status-quo, and changing perceptions.
All activities of the City of Victoria Youth Council take place on the unceded Coast Salish lands and waters of the Lekwungen nations. We are privileged to be doing this work and acknowledge our responsibility as settlers to extend our solidarities to Indigenous communities and their movements. We cannot talk about migrant issues without centering the urgency for decolonization and the right of Indigenous people to sovereignty and self-governance.
