Earlier in the year we wrote to everyone who had pledged support to Coventry City of Sanctuary asking a number of questions. From the responses we received it was clear that many would value an annual meeting in which we can learn from one another about the various aspects of working with those who seek sanctuary in Coventry. As a result we have organised Working with Sanctuary in association with the Coventry Peace Festival. This will be an information fair for individuals and organizations working with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants where invited contributors will share their experience. There should also be space for you to bring information about your own work and network with other supporters of Coventry City of Sanctuary. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
Confirmed Speakers are:-
‘Walking in Faith’ audio-visual presentation on a day in the life of destitute asylum seekers in the city – with Mjiba (one participant) present
Sue Sampson- Carriers of Hope –
Refugee and Migrant Centre Community Partnerships Unit
Murielle Galvani, Schools for Sanctuary
Rumbi Bvunzawabaya, legal issues
