The event will be held at the Bloomsbury Baptist Church, on October 24, from 11am-5pm. A wide variety of topics will be covered by a number of incredible speakers and activists:
Zita Holbourne: National Co-Chair Black Activists Rising Against Cuts (BARAC) UK - Refugees and Racism
Muzna (Syrian Activist) - Personal experiences
Matthew Powell (Breaking Barriers) - Providing support for newcomers upon arrival
Zoe Gardner - Movement Against Xenophobia (MAX)

More speakers to be confirmed!
Please join us for what promises to be an informative and inspiring day, where we can come together and discuss ideas regarding how to end this crisis for good. The government have no intention of supporting refugees or opening the border and it is down to us to force them.
Tea, coffee, and food will of course be available, too.
