As the general election campaign gets underway the issue of immigration will be high on the political agenda. Unfortunately the majority of the parties will reinforce the racist stereotypes about immigrants that is commonplace in our newspapers and media.

The meeting will set out a very different narrative to that of the political establishment. It will promote the positive role of immigration by challenging the stereotypes.
