SolidariTee Conference 2021
Bringing together a diverse lineup of speakers covering topics ranging from the media's depiction of refugees to mental health challenges as a result of forced displacement, the SolidariTee Conference aims to provide an action-focused weekend on 6-7th February 2021. United by a commitment to refugee rights but with differing areas of expertise, our programme of accessible talks and panel discussions will allow people with different levels of prior knowledge around refugee issues to connect virtually.
Tickets are available now and can be reserved on a donation basis, with a £5 suggested minimum donation to SolidariTee. 100% of the proceeds will be used to fund our grants for NGOs providing legal aid to asylum seekers. We believe strongly that access to education should be without financial barriers, so if this minimum donation would not be possible for any reason, please email [email protected] For tickets, visit https://www.solidaritee.org.uk/week-of-action-2021.
