Amnesty International Canada (English and French speaking) and CCR are embarking on a public awareness campaign to make Canada more welcoming towards refugees. The campaign’s key messages will be to call for:
- more refugees,
- more fairness for refugees and
- more welcoming communities.
We want to rebut myths about refugees and emphasize the contributions of refugees.
We will be inviting CCR and AI members, youth and others across Canada to participate in this campaign, which will focus on mobilizing local communities, building on the leadership shown by many mayors across Canada.
Key campaign dates will be Refugee Rights Day (April 4) and World Refugee Day (but perhaps with activities moved forward to early June). The campaign will run from now to the end of June 2016.
