Passages: A youth awareness event confronting the plight of refugees
On Fri. Jan. 22, 2016, we are hosting Passages at the Cobourg Community Centre from 7:00-9:30pm in partnership with several community organizations and churches. Admission is $5.00 with all proceeds going directly to the Better Together Refugee Sponsorship Project. We are excited to announce that we will have ASL interpretation for the event! Please pre-register here so that we can prepare for your participation.
We have all seen the refugee crisis in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe in the news and on social media. We know that Canada plans on resettling 25,000 Syrian refugees by February 2016. This does not include the thousands of refugees that are already being processed through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
There are several groups and many citizens of Northumberland County who are committed to sponsoring refugee families in our community. Several questions naturally come up: Why do people flee their countries? When are they coming? Will they speak English? What was their home country like? What schools will their kids be going to? Where will they live? What will they look like? Act like? Live like?
Through Passages, we hope to help the young people of Northumberland County become more aware of the plight of refugees and maybe even discover that refugees are people just like us who deserve safety, hope and a future just like us.
More details are on our Facebook event page.
