If you’re in or close to Brantford Ontario and want something to do tomorrow (Friday) evening, there’s an event going on there March 18th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at the Muslim Association of Brantford Community Centre (200 Greenwich St.). This event is a Syrian refugee community forum hosted by local sponsorship group the Community Association for Refugee Education and Settlement (C.A.R.E.S.) in Brant County.
The special guest for the evening is Omar Alghabra, MP for Mississauga Centre and the Parliamentary Secretary to Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion. Come hear personal stories, meet some of the refugees who have recently arrived in Brantford-Brant, ask questions, learn more about the sponsorship process and crisis in Syria, and how our Government and local community members can help out.
You can RSVP here if you want to attend, so the organizers can plan for food and setup appropriately. If you have any questions/inquiries, you can send an email to [email protected] or check out their FB page at https://www.facebook.com/caresbrant
