Bristol City of Sanctuary AGM


Bristol City of Sanctuary Trustees warmly invite you to their Lunch-time Annual General Meeting ‘The Welcoming City’

Bristol City of Sanctuary was established as a charity last year. The organisation continues to carry a key strategic role in Bristol, to promote the vision and message of welcome and safety for people seeking sanctuary here.

This AGM will bring you up to date with both local and global refugee and migration initiatives to resist the hostile environment and make sanctuary a reality. The focus will be on climate change and migration, city networks across Europe, and local action such as the Bristol University Sanctuary Scholarships scheme. Formal business of the charity will be briefly conducted including presentation of accounts and approval of examiners.

Speakers include:

  • The Mayor, Marvin Rees,

  • the Manager of BCoS, Forward Maisokwadzo,

  • staff and students from Bristol University, with video made by STAR

  • Director of Borderlands, April Humble

An excellent lunch, presented by Food without Borders, will be available on donation.

Individuals and organisations who support the aims of BCOS are invited to become legal members by completing the enclosed application form. You can also join at the event; please bring cash or cheque book.
