RaricaNow , provides a supportive, empowering and safe space for LGBTQI+ refugees and newcomers in Edmonton Alberta and as well networking with others internationally to mobilize. LGBTQI+ refugees and newcomers have the opportunity to access the bi-weekly gathering, put on my Raricanow. It can be really very helpful to refugees to remind them that they are not alone and that they have a chosen family and place. Communities that welcome, embrace refugees and host them provide opportunities for quality life, happiness, liberty and dignity. In turn, refugees who are well received turn out to discover their full potential, contribute to their wellbeing and that of host communities/countries.
