Building a Movement that Supports Migrants

Date
Sun 22.09.19
Timings
1pm – 2:30pm

Labour needs a compelling, bold vision for challenging racism, exploitation and attacks against migrants. But what does such a vision look like? Who ought to create it? And how can the Labour movement go beyond the existing framework and racist rhetoric set by the media and the right?

This event will launch a migration charter issued by migrant rights groups calling for an immigration policy based on justice, dignity and fairness, and will work with activists to discuss how they can bring this vision into being.
