With Janet Dench, CCR Executive Director, Canadian Council for Refugees
Canada has signed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, thereby promising to respect the basic rights of children. But the rights of children who are not Canadian citizens are not always respected. In 2012, the UN is examining Canada on its compliance with the Convention – this is a great opportunity for change!
This will be an interactive and youth-friendly introductory training session on how to organize and conduct a meeting with your Member of Parliament to talk about non-citizen children rights. We will focus on detention and family reunification. All are welcome! For more information on the campaign for non-citizen children rights, click here.
*This presentation is offered in English, but participants are welcome to express themselves in French.
