Inclusive City Cafe – What do you mean by “civic engagement”?

Free to attend! Register at Eventbrite.

Join the Surrey LIP for coffee and a lively discussion to explore the concept of CIVIC engagement for newcomer residents in Surrey. How do immigrants learn about volunteer leadership opportunities? How do they participate in civic affairs? What would help immigrant residents to get more involved in their community?

The event will take place at the City Centre Library in Surrey in the READ-Ability Lounge, 1st floor.

The discussion facilitators will include members of the Surrey Immigrant Advisory Roundtable (IAR). Surrey IAR is a group of 16 immigrant and refugee residents who work together to make Surrey more welcoming and inclusive.

*The Inclusive City Cafe series is a partnership between the Surrey Local Immigration Partnership, the City of Surrey, SFU Philosophers’ Cafe, and the SFU Surrey – TD Community Engagement Centre.
