We are family event - 14th February - with Migrants' Rights Network and On Road Media


On Friday 14 February, St Valentine’s Day, Migrants Rights Network and On Road Media are organising a half-day event to talk about the right to family life of those who have been separated from their loved ones by the family migration rules introduced in 2012. 
When: Friday 14 February 2014, 1pm - 5.30pm
Where: St Bride Foundation, 14 Bride Lane, London EC4Y 8EQ (map)
The event on the 14th Feb at the iconic St Bride Foundation will be an opportunity for families to speak with journalists, campaigners and others who are sympathetic on this issue. We will also organise a number of workshops on topics like campaigning, speaking to media and video blogging.
We are Family” is a new initiative to highlight the plight of these families. It is part of the wider Divided Families campaign against the new tough rules on family migration, which brings together affected families, charities, MPs and other supporters.
If you wish to join us on the 14th February please fill out our online event registration form.

We will get in touch to confirm your place and to provide you with further details for the day. We also have a number of small bursaries to help with travel costs for those families living outside of London. Do get in touch with our team on info@migrantsrights.org.uk
