IIWR-MB is excited to host the 10th Anniversary of Local to Global, with Ketty Nivyabandi, a peace activist and refugee from Burundi. Ketty has a story to tell, and a message for all.
Ketty Nivyabandi was a leader in mobilizing women in protest against her country’s government and this eventually led her to flee from persecution, to Canada. As a refugee, Ketty continues to be a voice for peace and rule of law in her country –Burundi– and she will speak on human rights, refugee issues, the intimate effects of conflict on women’s lives globally and her work as Media Associate for the Nobel Women’s Initiative.
There will be special entertainment, refreshments, door prizes, a wonderful raffle, displays and much more!
Emcee is CBC's Marcy Marcusa!
Tickets only $35.00 ($20 for students)
