CARE WORK STORIES: DIGITAL EDITION
SUNDAY JUNE 21, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EST
A discussion with Filipino Care Workers and allies to explore their long history fighting for (and winning) human rights in Canada. Register online at https://rb.gy/nsujtc
Migrant Care Workers are more than the "care" they provide to children, the elderly and our most vulnerable family members. Their stories are complex and as varied as the people who live them - past and present.
Kwentong Bayan Collective hosts a discussion with Filipino Care Workers and allies to explore their long history fighting for (and winning) human rights in Canada. We will learn about the recent movement that boldly calls for "Full Immigration Status for All".
We will meet artists who support migrant communities to tell their stories. And listen to the personal stories of Migrant Care Workers whose labour is currently keeping communities safe during COVID-19.
On June 14th join the Migrant Rights Network as they launch a campaign by over 40 migrant-led and allied organizations for full immigration status for all: www.MigrantRights.ca/June2020
Join a massive digital and social media gathering of migrants, poor and working class people, and allies. The global COVID-19 pandemic has proven that migrants are essential to our communities, but are exploited and excluded. Together, migrants from across Canada will raise our voice for healthcare, decent work, family unity and equal rights for all.
Actions will take place all day on social media and in the streets, learn more and get involved: https://migrantrights.ca/june2020
