The Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Centre, in collaboration with OCASI and MOFIF, is excited to extend an invitation to the launch of the new multilingual editions of "Telling Our Stories: Immigrant Women’s Resilience" on August 17 (5 pm - 8 pm) at the Kitchener Public Library - Main Location, Theatre (85 Queen St N, Kitchener, ON N2H 2H1). We invite all to join us for the launch which will feature speakers, performances, and readings of the graphic novel. The event is free and open to all and dinner will be provided.

“Telling Our Stories” is part of the Ontario’s Action Plan to stop Sexual Violence and Harassment public education campaign. The campaign features the graphic novel designed to help raise awareness about sexual violence and harassment in the refugee and immigrant communities. The graphic novel will now be available in Punjabi, Urdu, Tamil, Spanish, Chinese, Dari, Armenian, Arabic and Somali. The stories featured in the graphic novel were written by immigrant and refugee women in workshops across the province. The novels are free of charge and will be distributed in newcomer communities and will be available at the Kitchener launch.
