Saturday 4 July 2020, 1-6 pm, Toxteth Town Hall
On the “International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination”, Citizens Advice Liverpool will be celebrating the roots and routes which brought us to Our Liverpool, this wonderfully welcoming city of refuge!
They are inviting the community to come together for a celebration of the many cultures which form our heritage: through arts, dance, music, poetry, food and all the things which make our human lives more enjoyable! They will use this as an opportunity to raise awareness of many different issues and provide a platform for people from our diverse community to tell their own stories in their own way. This event will also celebrate the contributions made to our community by volunteers and the value of sharing skills to benefit the wider community, as well as individual personal development.
What’s on offer?
- Stalls from Granby market selling crafts, including henna tattooing
- Performances from the Asylum Link Choir, Movema and others
- A family breakout zone with a crèche and activities for children
- Food for sale from Ragga’s
- There is an open invitation to “bring and share” a plate of food for our free international buffet
- Talks about the roots and routes that brought us to Liverpool, on topics including The Italian Mill Girls and their journey to the UK in the 1950’s, and ‘The 3 Million’ giving a voice to EU citizens in the UK
- The EUSS project and the Windrush scheme will be available on the day to make applications
Overall, the day will celebrate the work of Citizens Advice Liverpool’s EU Settlement Scheme Support Project and launch the new Equalities Programme and volunteer recruitment drive for 2020.
