A spirited celebration of the contributions of refugees to Ottawa, and of our community's welcome for refugees. The event is an Open House at Amnesty’s beautiful historic building on Laurier Avenue East and will present an opportunity for the general public to engage in activism for refugee rights. Inspiring speakers. Light refreshments. Live music.
New Canadians Bushra Alarim and Husam Aldakhil will speak about their experience of being welcomed in Ottawa. Alex Neve, Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada, will open the event.
We are delighted that Surai Tea will provide its organic jasmine scented teas, handcrafted in Canada and packaged by Syrian-Canadian refugees.
