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
