Our stories, our images, our power, ourselves.

Migrant farmworkers, domestic workers, undocumented and sex workers have created a Migrant Unity Quilt of our stories, images and collective desires. The quilt signifies our struggles and our victories for equality, justice and permanent resident status for all.

This installation is accompanied by hand drawn pictures by hundreds of migrant children separated from their families, or living in fear of deportation and separation, calling for family unity.

Our Opening Reception on May 6 is part of cross-country, arts-based day of action demanding permanent residence status for all. This event is an opportunity for artists and migrants to come together in community and in action.

Join us as we deepen the struggle to regularize everyone and ensure status for all. Attendees and online supporters are invited to sign our petition at www.StatusForAll.ca

Migrant Workers Alliance for Change supports the self-organization of migrants. We are building our power to support each other and win justice for us all. We support migrants to stand up against bad bosses and fix problems with immigration. We build migrant power by bringing together workers on farms, in factories, on campuses and in communities to create the change they want. We fight for better laws and fairness for all of us. We work with Indigenous, labour, climate, and faith allies to build a better world for everyone. Click here if you are a migrant who wants to join our organization!

The Migrant Rights Network is a cross-Canada alliance to combat racism and fight for migrant justice. We are a network of organizations of migrants including farmworkers, careworkers, international students, undocumented people as well as allies. We believe that racial justice is migrant justice is economic justice is climate justice is global justice.
