Refugee week is coming!  #RefugeesContribute: share your story of how

Refugee Week 2015 is a great opportunity to celebrate the contribution of refugees and City of Sanctuary groups along with many others will be involved from the 15th to the 21st of June.  

This year, Refugee Week’s media focus is on the inspiring events and stories happening at a local and regional level around the country. The Refugee Week media consultant is looking for a selection of extraordinary ordinary local stories which she will pitch to journalists in local and regional media

You can also share your story of how a refugee has made a difference to you or your community on the Refugee Week website to create a big noise celebrating the refugees in our communities and showing the world the huge contribution they make to our lives.

Tell your story in a photo, drawing, poem, video message – or however you like – and send it to Emily Churchill Zaraa at [email protected], along with your name and Twitter handle (if you have one) by 18 May.

See the Refugee Week website  for more information about Refugee Week across the country and remember to upload your events onto their events pages  to share and publicise these.

You can also email Emily with ‘Join mailing list’ in the subject heading to join the Refugee Week mailing list.
