Spotlight on… ‘I am an immigrant’ Campaign!
IOM is proud to support the launch of the ‘I am an immigrant’ campaign! Let us continue celebrating the contribution of migrants in the UK and worldwide. Coordinated by the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, this crowdfunded campaign aims to ‘negate the anti-immigrant climate currently developing, celebrate the vital contribution of immigrants and induce an open and inclusive conversation about immigration policy built on human rights and equality’. The IOM #MigrantHeroes digital campaign will form part of the ‘I am an immigrant’ website to encourage migrants to share their stories with the chance to become an IOM Goodwill Ambassador. Join us on Monday to lend your support and show how vital migrants are to the fabric of British, and global, society.
The launch will take place on Monday, 13 April 2015 from 19:00 to 21:30 (BST) at Congress House, Great Russell Street, WC1B 3LS London. Click here for more information.
