Mothers’ Day Against Borders

When: Sunday, 14 May 2017, 2pm
Where: Jarry Parc (metro Castelnau), near the Gazebo
What: On Mothers’ Day, the Non Status Women’s Collective of Montreal is hosting a picnic to celebrate the struggles of courageous mothers who have crossed and defied borders for a better future for themselves and for their children. Some have spoken out publicly; many more struggle in the shadows to mother without status, to end/avoid separation from their children, to get their children a life of dignity, a better life.
* Delicious, free food!
* Art workshops, info-table, music, kids’ activities!
* Fun & solidarity!
