Dear Friends,

It was pointed out that in last weeks' Sanctuary update there were issues with the links for the new QPSW Woodbrooke course focusing on the roots of racism and the UK's immigration system. Thank you to those who alerted us to this, the link has now been fixed. 

The course comprises of four sessions on Thursdays at 7PM - 9PM between 8 March 2021 - 4 April 2021. To read more or to book, please visit the Woodbrooke website

I have also re-attached the full information below.

Understanding the roots of the UK’s immigration system and how to dismantle it

Starting in March, we will be running a four-part course with Woodbrooke to understand and reflect on the root causes of racism and the draconian immigration policy of the UK. The course has been developed collaboratively by Tatiana Garavito from Quaker Peace and Social Witness, Kékéli Kpognon from Quaker Council for European Affairs and Catherine Henderson from Quaker Asylum and Refugee Network.

Through four interactive sessions, this short course will discuss the narratives and social constructs that have led to the current anti-immigrant sentiment as well as the ways in which people and communities can begin to get organised to build power that achieves racial and migrant justice.

We are hoping that the course will be useful to many Friends, including those who are not currently involved in Sanctuary Meetings. Please share this widely though your meeting and your networks.

The course costs £42 with live sessions are every Thursday at 19:00-21:00 between 8th March 2021 - 4th April 2021. To read more or to book, please visit the Woodbrooke website

We are keen that financial burden should not be a barrier to attending this course. For information on potential financial support please the Woodbrooke website.
Thank you for reading!

As always, if you or your meeting have any work or projects to share or you have needs for support please get in contact with Tatiana or Philip. We would love to hear from you.
