16 February 209- A day school -  'Humanising Migration Narratives post Brexit', to be held on the organised by the  ‘Ella Baker School of Transformative Organising’ in association with Unite Community.

The event will bring together community activists, anti-racists, migrant supporters, academics and trade unionists to discuss how we challenge an increasingly toxic and deliberately hostile narrative around migration, in the specific context of the impending Brexit.

The day will be taken up with a series of sessions looking at the context in which anti migrant narratives have become so dominant, how communities can best respond to far right provocations, and techniques for creating new unifying narratives. Each of these will involve an introduction followed by break-out sessions, where discussions leading to resolutions can be developed while allowing all attendees to participate as equals.
