Important meeting coming up soon

You are warmly invited to attend our Annual General Meeting on Monday 15 July. 

AGM - GUEST SPEAKER: MIHAI CALIN BICA

Statistics have shown an increase in Hate Crime in the aftermath of the EU Referendum and has been further exacerbated by divisions caused by Brexit- therefore Gypsy, Roma and Traveller issues, marginalisation, prejudice and discrimination are currently a major priority.

So it is relevant that our guest speaker will be Mihai Calin Bica from the Roma Support Group, who will be talking on:

 Brexit for the Roma Community – from Hate Crime to Possible Future Windrush

 Mihai Calin Bica is a Romanian Roma qualified social worker with 8 years’ experience working with Roma communities – starting in Romania in employment-related projects with Roma women and Roma community members in the detention system and supporting young Roma in accessing university education. He also collaborated with the European Roma Rights Centre on human rights monitoring. He began work with the Roma Support Group in the UK in October 2016, coordinating its Campaigning and Advocacy project and, more recently, its Brexit related activities.

 Light refreshments will be available from 7.00 pm.
