Finding Hope amidst Hostility

The last year has continued a trend of growing hostility towards refugees and asylum seekers, manifested in government policies and new plans for asylum, and inflammatory rhetoric in the media. In this open and conversational-style talk, Megan Knowles (Interim Deputy Director at the Jesuit Refugee Service UK) will share the different ways JRS UK works to create communities of hospitality. She will introduce some of the refugee friends JRS accompanies and offer concrete ways we can all find hope and solidarity amidst hostility. Megan has worked and volunteered supporting refugees and asylum seekers for over six years. She is an integral part of JRS’s mission to accompany, serve and advocate for the rights of refugees.

Tickets £5 (with half the revenue going to JRS)
