The Refugee Support Association, a student club at UOttawa, hosted a panel discussion in honour of International Women’s Day on Contemporary Refugee Issues and the Refugee Experience. The evening brought together women and men, students and community members, to share stories and speak about concrete actions for refugee support.  Ticket proceeds went to Carty House, a first home and helping hand for female refugees, located in Sandy Hill.  Pictured above are, left to right: panelist Pamela Walker, Carleton U, Prof of History, student organizer Ilira Mucaj, panelist Louise Ebeltoft, Carty House Manager of Operations  and Refugee Services, and panelist Justine Nkurunziza, past resident of Carty House. —Michelle Miller
