Description

The Manitoba Multifaith Council (MMC) invites you to its 5th Annual Multifaith Leadership Breakfast. Please join us on Tuesday, February 27th, 2018 at the University of Winnipeg's Convocation Hall for our annual discussion and dialogue series. This year's topic, "Strangers No More: Refugees, Schools and a Future for All," examines at how Manitoba teachers and administrators are meeting the challenge of the many young refugees coming into our Manitoba classrooms. Our guest speaker Mohammad Rezai, Vice-Principal of Grant Park High School is himself familiar with the refugee experience, having left Iran at the age of 20. Grant Park is home to 1300 students and includes a large number of Inclusion Support, newcomer, and refugee (mostly privately sponsored) students.

Tickets for this Continental Breakfast are $30 each or $210 for a table of 8. A portion of each ticket will be considered as a donation and you will receive an charitable donation receipt.

Doors open at 7:00 am. Breakfast served at 7:30 am.

With support from the Ridd Institute for Religion and Global Policy of the University of Winnipeg's Global College and the University of Winnipeg.
