After being awarded New Scots Refugee Integration Delivery Project funds by the Scottish Government, COSLA and the UNESCO Chair at the University of Glasgow, Govanhill Baths Community Action Programme has been working hard alongside our friends at Unity Sisters and Milk Café to bring the ‘Our Rights, Our Communities’ project to life.
The Project aims to deliver a unique model of community-based, New Scots Women-led advocacy over 2021 and 2022. Exploring, acknowledging and developing an understanding of intersectional oppression, we have been creating collective and accessible resources to tackle it from a grassroots perspective.
“Our Rights” will put the needs of New Scots Women at the heart and head of the struggle for equality. They will be at the forefront in delivering anti-racist and equality work, rather than having equality done for them.
We’re now delighted to say the project has been successful so far as outlined in the project’s first six months report. Check it out here.
The project is part-funded through the European Union Asylum Migration Integration Fund. Making management of migration flows more efficient across the European Union.
