The University of Sanctuary initiative attended the UEA Freshers Fair on 26th September 2019. New students were able to learn more about the initiative, including how to get involved.
As part of the event, Emma Skeet, the founder of The Friend ship and University of Sanctuary Steering group member, engaged with students about her recent project ‘The Butterfly Effect’, which focuses on raising awareness of The Detention Forum‘s campaign to end indefinite detention at UK immigration detention centres. Emma is creating fabric butterflies with members of the community, with embroidered messages of solidarity. All butterflies will be sent to detainees at Brook House Immigration Detention Centre.
For more information about this project and how to campaign to end indefinite detention please contact The Friend Ship.
