Our Annual General Meeting will take place at 6.15pm (for a 6.30pm start) on Friday 9th October at Headingley Heart Cafe, Bennet Road, Headingley, LS6 3HN and will last about 30 minutes.
Leeds has been home to many refugees over the years.The legacy left by different waves of migration is a thriving economy and rich cultural heritage – from Marks and Sparks to the longest running carnival in Europe.
Leeds has not always been a place of welcome or sanctuary – and 46 years after the death of David Oluwale, many refugees still find life in Leeds cold, brutal, and dangerous.
We invite you to come and listen, and to share your perspective on how refugees have changed Leeds, or how life as a refugee in Leeds has changed you.
We will be joined by refugees, volunteers, activists, academics, politicians and local residents
