Our Future Together: A Live Discussion Between The Good Daughter Director and MOSAIC
Understanding is the very first step towards kindness.
In recent years, Taiwan experienced a sharp rise in the number of newcomers, second generation Taiwaneses, and migrants; its society is becoming more diverse. On the other side of the Pacific, Canada is a diverse country that has been emphasizing multiculturalism for a long time. Both countries enjoy a relatively high-level of standard of living and that attracts many migrants who are seeking for a better life. As an important part of our society, what kind of challenge do these newcomers face? TWFF is hosting a forum between MOSAIC, a temporary foreign workers and migrant support agency, and Director Wu to discuss the stories they’ve heard.
Time: Live streaming Friday, Sept. 17, 7:00PM
