Right to Refuge: A Panel Discussion

September 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

“Everyone deserves to live in safety. And everyone has the right to seek refuge when their safety and dignity is threatened. Right now, more than 65 million people worldwide have been forced to leave their homes to be free from war and persecution. Millions more are on the move because of natural disasters and poverty.”

The displacement of refugees is possibly the biggest humanitarian crisis we are currently experiencing. Being able to have conversations, become informed, and better understand the greatest issues in our world today is an incredibly important thing.

Join us  for a thought provoking panel discussion following the Oxfam ‘Right to Refuge’ campaign.
