Knox Presbyterian Church

In the face of a global surge in xenophobic violence, cities across Canada and around the world are declaring themselves sanctuaries, promising to protect the rights of migrants and guarantee access to city services for all, access without fear.
The meeting will feature a panel discussion with community workers, researchers, and people with first hand experience of living with precarious status. The panel will be followed by breakout sessions on strategies for making Ottawa a sanctuary city.
Speakers: Graciela Flores, Jennifer Ridgely, Jack McCarthy and Karen Cocq
