Amplify the Voices of Rohingya Refugees in Canada

It is important to reach out to these individuals and, when possible, offer them a platform to share their stories.

If you want to see if there are Rohingya community members in your city, consider contacting the Rohingya Association of Canada or the Rohingya Youth in Canada

 A group of Rohingya refugee youth living in Kitchener, ON, worked with director Yusuf Zine to develop the play “I Am Rohingya”. They were able to successfully crowdfund to cover the costs of producing a documentary about the making of the play. Now would be a great time to find a way to share this important work.

Consider reaching out to the team currently producing the documentary to see if there is any way to help support the production process or to work with them to ensure the documentary is screened widely across Canada and beyond. You may contact them at innerspeakdigitalmedia@gmail.com.
