ORGANISE YOUR OWN 1 DAY WITHOUT US EVENT   

Why not put on your own event for the day?

 

Here are some ideas:  

  • Hold a community picnic and invite your neighbours and migrants from your local community

  • Hold a ‘bake-off’ and ask people to bring dishes from their native countries

  • Put on a mini-festival with music from people’s home countries

  • Hold a storytelling session and invite people to share stories from around the globe

  • Put on a community football match

  • Make a video about how migrants have contributed to your community

  • Take a photo of yourself and your migrant colleagues holding up placards outlining what job they do and where they are from

 

If you are hosting a celebration event, and would like 1 Day Without US to help promote it, then please let them know here.
