Building on what you have seen in An Evening with an Immigrant, this talk will give you a grounding in the UK’s current immigration policy and what you can do to support JCWI’s campaigns. Minnie is a writer and campaigner specialising in migrant’s rights, climate change and social justice.
First performed in 2016, Inua Ellams updates the script of An Evening with an Immigrant as a global change occurs. “I have to keep the text new so it always feels current.”
The show continues to be meaningful to audiences in multiple ways; those with their own immigration or migration stories connect on a personal level while others gain understanding and insight into the issues around immigration through the personal experiences shared by Inua.
JCWI in its own words:
For more than half a century, JCWI has been challenging policies that lead o discrimination, destitution and the denial of rights. And we’ve been providing much-needed legal and advisory services to the people who need them most. We’ve helped tens of thousands of people secure their status, keep their families together and escape poverty. And we’ve consistently been one of the leading voices for a fairer, more just immigration system that works for everyone.
We Are Here is the JCWI campaign for simple, workable reforms to help break the cycle of insecure immigration status.
