Webinar preparing for Landmark National Day of Action (21/3/22) on Nationality & Borders Bill

March 2 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

“One last time, we need to show the depth and breadth of support for a more compassionate approach to refugees. We’re encouraging you to collect and assemble the signs of support you have gathered from your communities, assemble them into huge orange hearts and place them on a local landmark. Of course, any interpretation of this action works, so long as it helps to demonstrate public support for the asylum system that we want to see. Plans are already underway to land hearts on iconic landmarks in Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol and Cardiff.

On 2 March at 5.30pm we’ll have a webinar to help you plan your events. The webinar aims to help equip local groups to plan and execute their best landmark action yet on the National Day of Action 21 March.

Who is it for:
