Youth Action Gathering on Refugee Rights!!

From 31 August to 2 September 2012, newcomer youth advocates from across Canada will be heading to Montreal for the first CCR Youth Action Gathering on the theme of “Engaging Newcomer Youth in Participatory Media for Social Change.” Newcomer youth, youth settlement workers and their allies will acquire knowledge and skills in a series of action-oriented workshops, and most importantly, foster relationships of solidarity with those working on the same issues across Canada, and bring home with them an empowered sense of their ability to inspire change in their communities.
