Lately I’ve been speaking with a lot of African refugees and most point to the fact that they are here
but very much limited at what they are allowed to do. They can’t get a job, or attend an “official” educational program, or leave the city for example.
would be amazing to have workshops specifically for refugees!
and no beating around the bush about diversity-- call it “Programming for Refugees” or something.
i think it would be an amazingly wonderful political move to help educate people that the state in which they live
does not care too much about. put the power in their hands! reaching out to refugee organisations or just going out
and speaking with them where they hang out would be a start.
just curious if anyone is interested in doing a bit more grassroots organising?
we may talk about diversity but our communities are largely not very diverse.
we can’t expect diverse groups to come to us (clearly) but maybe we should start making a greater effort
to go to them!
just a thought…
