Refugee women face many unique and challenging experiences whencoming to Canada. Join us for a Social Issues Discussion about these experiences with Cydney Melnyk, a local researcher on refugee issues, Celestina Akinkunmi from Calgary Immigrant Women's Association, and Samia Jamal with the Syrian Refugee Support Group.
Learn about women's poverty in Calgary and Alberta, and the various ways in which poverty shows up at the Women's Centre. Discover how the Women's Centre addresses poverty through its unique peer model and three strategic areas: Get Assistance, Connect with Others and Work for Change. No children in this workshop please.
