MONTREAL, March 1, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - What does it mean to be a "survivor" displaced by war, genocide, or human rights violations living in Quebec? Released in 2008, the Bouchard-Taylor report on Accommodation Practices Related to Cultural Differences recommended that Quebecers invest effort and resources to record the life stories of newcomers to Quebec.
Life Stories of Montrealers Displaced by War, Genocide, and Other Human Rights Violations (Montreal Life Stories) www.lifestoriesmontreal.ca, has recorded the life stories of about 500 Montreal residents, for dissemination through film, theater, dance, radio and television productions and educational materials for schools.
Media representatives are invited to a press conference in which the researchers behind the Montreal Life Stories project will unveil the top ten public policy recommendations that have emerged from the research.
|When:||Thursday, March 8, 10:00 a.m.|
|1182 St-Laurent Blvd., north of René-Lévesque|
The detailed schedule of events for the Montreal Life Stories Rencontres http://lifestoriesmontreal.ca/node/818 will also be unveiled. Approximately 40 linked events will take place throughout the city in March, to begin the dissemination of the research that has been accomplished over the past 5 years.
