April 4th marks #Refugee Rights Day in Canada. In partnership with MOSAIC, we are excited to launch the video trailer of “After Arrival.”
This film showcases the incredible journey of three LGBTQIA+ refugee claimants who have become leaders in our community. It gives a glimpse into the experience of Dennis Juarez, Kristi Pinderi (he/him), and Norma Lize.
These remarkable individuals all arrived in Canada as refugee claimants and they each make significant community impact through their leadership.
Thank you Alexandra Dawley, Gergely Toth, Salih Arif, Mariana Martinez Vieyra, Muna Zaidalkilani and Government of British Columbia. This film will be launched in June 2021 as part of World Refugee Day Events.
Take a look at the trailer.
