National Refugee Women’s Conference: Building a better asylum system
Wed 1 March 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 GMT
Join us for the second National Refugee Women’s Conference, organised by Women for Refugee Women and the London Refugee Women’s Forum.
Noma Dumezweni (Hermione in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) will open the conference, and we will close with a performance from Yasmin Kadi, singer-songwriter and refugee.
Kate Osamor MP (Labour) and Richard Fuller MP (Conservative) will speak about their support for women seeking asylum.
Our inspiring refugee women speakers include Mina Jaf (Women Refugee Route), Mariam Yusuf (Women Asylum Seekers Together Manchester), Zrinka Bralo (Migrants Organise) and Marchu Girma (Women for Refugee Women). Other speakers include Hannah Pool, Nimco Ali, and Kat Banyard.
As the Set Her Free campaign enters its fourth year, we're gathering to plan, build solidarity, and campaign with refugee women. We'll also be launching Women for Refugee Women's new research on alternatives to detention, exploring how we can build a better, fairer, asylum system.
Travel can be reimbursed for asylum seekers, please contact Women for Refugee Women as soon as possible in advance if you require travel expenses from outside London.
