Our Collective Strength Report – December 11, 2013

On November 7, 2013 the Migrant Mothers Project hosted “Our Collective Strength”, a community event to raise consciousness on the intersections of violence against women, precarious immigration status and human rights.  This event was generously sponsored by the Women & Gender Studies Institute Community Knowledge Alliance initiative and took place in the William Doo Auditorium and atrium at the University of Toronto.  Over 70 people attended to network with student and community groups during the community fair, enjoy food prepared by Conscious Kosher Catering, and bear witness to the digital stories, poetry, and dance performance created by women living with precarious status in Canada and their allies.
