Dinner, Movie and Discussion about Refugee Resettlement

Dinner, Movie and Discussion about Refugee Resettlement

In Partnership with “The Edge on Main,” we present dinner, dessert, and a movie about refugee resettlement – all funds go towards resettling refugees in the Yukon!
 
Your $20 (plus processing fees) includes you perogy dinner, dessert and a documentary as well as a discussion facilitated by Yukon Cares. All profits go towards resettling refugees in the Yukon.
 
This documentary travels the migration corridor forged between Sherbrooke, Quebec, and the town of Brooks, Alberta, by French-speaking Africans. Most have come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, some by way of refugee camps in Uganda and Tanzania. Unable to find employment in Quebec, they travelled out West. An interweaving of personal stories and the filmmaker’s own trips back and forth through the corridor offer an honest look at how much work is yet to be done to successfully integrate these newcomers.
 
Doors open at 5 pm, Dinner is served at 5:30, and the movie begins at 6.
