We had a great event yesterday in the community with other women celebrating International Women's Day and addressing some of the key issues of precarious work faced by our community. Community women presented videos, skits, popular songs, and a local Bengali newspaper series published by community women (will be made available on our website). Community academics and activists sat an a panel to share their work and experience, which was followed by a discussion among community members. The discussion highlighted the need to connect with other community stakeholders and build solidarity with other communities to advance the rights of all!
We would like to thank Soma Chatterjee from York University School of Social Work for her amazing work in co-hosting the event, our beloved sisters on the panel, and to the community with whom we have the pleasure working with, and hope to continue working with in the future 🙂
