How we can build a future that will include all intersectional voices within the narrative for change?
Navigating our path within this world is difficult, but it is no secret that forcibly marginalised folks have had to face multiple barriers and challenges to actively find their ‘space’ within this society. Join Zahra Al Hilaly and a panel of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, to discuss our path in creating a safe culture for the future generation that will walk after us. This panel discussion will discuss the how we can build a future that will include all intersectional voices within the narrative for change.
