You, Me and Those Who Came Before

This event has been organised by our friends at the Sussex Refugee and Migrant Self Support Group and the Jollof Cafe.

Their description of the event is:

We want to challenge the conventional perceptions of migration. We all move. We are all migrants. We want to build a movement that resists the racism of borders and celebrates diversity and human freedom.

We have put together a panel of activists, thinkers and human rights practitioners to give an overview of current situation, a glimpse of the future and to start build a path ahead.
