This event presents a great opportunity for the Eritrean community in the UK to talk about their experience of protection and integration in the UK. It is a unique opportunity to meet with parliamentarians and practitioners who advocate for better rights of all refugees in the UK. We would like to encourage you to use this opportunity to talk directly about your experience of integration in the UK and to influence those who are in the position to bring a positive change.
