Of Wel­co­me:

La Jornada (Canada) - - QUÉ PASAR? -

But when an­ti-im­mi­grant pro­tes­ters gat­he­red at Lon­don city hall last sum­mer, countless Lon­do­ners went out of their way to show im­mi­grants ‘Yes, you are!’ - that all are wel­co­me he­re.

Many fa­ced-off against pro­tes­tors in a coun­ter-de­mons­tra­tion. One Lon­don wo­man went furt­her.

Sup­por­ters ga­ve nearly $500, which was do­na­ted to the Lon­don Cross Cul­tu­ral Lear­ner Cen­tre.

Now, th­rough a cam­paign ca­lled 1000 Acts of Wel­co­me, the Lon­don & Midd­le­sex Lo­cal Im­mi­gra­tion Part­ners­hip (LMLIP) is as­king peo­ple to en­ga­ge in acts of wel­co­me and to sha­re tho­se acts on so­cial me­dia.

Mo­de­led after LU­SO’s Lon­don-ba­sed 1,000 Acts of Kind­ness event, 1,000 Acts of Wel­co­me is the se­cond of a th­ree-pha­se cam­paign ai­med
