Seeking Refuge
From Persecution Related to Sexuality or Gender Identity

In 76 countries Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer people face imprisonment.  In at least 7, torture or death penalty.

Yet, Canada is making it harder  to seek refugee protection.

Rainbow Refugee is taking action to protect the right to refuge for those facing persecution of their sexuality or gender identity.

Join us for an evening of stories and discussion.

Speakers: Chris Morrissey, Founder; Sharalyn Jordan and other members of Rainbow  Refugee

Monday November 26th at 7pm
SFU Surrey
Surrey Central
Room 3090

This event is FREE and open to all.
