A meeting to plan the formation of an Inter-Cultural Forum for the Westmeath Area will take place in Westmeath Community Development, Business Development Centre, Parnell Square, Athlone on Wednesday 16th July @ 7.00pm
This meeting is for immigrants who think it is a good idea to work together to make their voices heard. The need for such a group was suggested during the consultation process for the Westmeath Integration and Diversity Strategy by immigrants from around the county.
What will the Inter-cultural forum do?
- Empower people from different immigrant backgrounds to work together to advance the position of immigrants in Westmeath
- Provide a voice for immigrants in Westmeath, when dealing with agencies, media etc
- Campaign and publicise issues affecting migrants
- Organise events, projects, information sessions, inter-cultural events etc.
