Also visible from the street after hours. Migrant farmworkers, domestic workers, undocumented and sex workers have created a Migrant Unity Quilty of stories, images and collective desires. The quilt signifies our struggles and our victories for equality, justice and permanent resident status for all. This installation is accompanied by hand drawn pictures by hundreds of migrant children separated from their families, or living in fear of deportation and separation, calling for family unity. Join us at the launch event to deepen the struggle to regularize everyone and ensure status for all. The launch will include artist talks, music and snacks. RSVP now!
Our stories, our images, our power, ourselves. The Migrant Unity Quilt is created by members of Migrant Rights Network – Ontario including Butterfly, Caregiver Connections Education and Support Organization (CCESO), FCJ Refugee Center, Migrant Workers Alliance for Change and Workers Action Centre. The children’s drawings are created by family members of Migrant Workers Alliance for Change. Co-presented with A Different Booklist
