Free training - Preparing and campaigning around detention

Monday, July 1, 2019 - 18:00 to 20:30
Victoria Hall, entrance on Chapel Walk, Sheffield S1 2JB

Right to Remain are running two training sessions (hosted by ASSIST, South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group and Campaign to Defend Asylum Seekers) this June and July for people concerned about immigration detention.

These sessions are aimed at people at risk of detention themselves, as well as people who support them. Places are limited. If we cannot fit you into these sessions, we will keep you informed of future events. So please book now if you want to attend, or support someone else to book a place for themselves.

Workshop 2: Campaigning for Change

Monday 1st July 18:00-20:30

at Victoria Hall, entrance on Chapel Walk, Sheffield S1 2JB - PLEASE USE SIDE ENTRANCE ON CHAPEL WALK NEXT TO THE SANCTUARY

People are being taken from our communities and locked up in prison-like detention centres, without time limit, with no idea of when they might be released. Why? They just don’t (yet) have the correct immigration papers.

These Walls Must Fall is an initiative started by Right to Remain, building a network of locally-based community campaigns, part of the growing movement to end immigration detention. People are pushing the campaign through their community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, trade unions, activist groups, faith communities, student societies, sports clubs… the list keeps growing!

This workshop will introduce the campaign, and discuss how we can build in Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

To register, please email the name of the person who wants to attend to contact@detention.org.uk, along with any accessibility needs which we will do our best to accommodate.

Please note - these workshops are delivered in English. If you would like to bring an interpreter along to help you or someone else understand the workshop, you are very welcome. It would be helpful if you could let us know about them attending, by emailing us.
