The video my Voice was launched in October, 2015. It reflects the challenges that non- status and refugees face in Canada, such as mental health. Many Canadian citizens don’t know about the challenges that immigrants face in the country.
Under the direction of Anessa Hanson (FCJ Youth Group), the video shows the experience of many young people and the barriers they face when they arrive to Canada. Check out the video on the FCJ Refugee Centre website (www.fcjrefugeecentre.org) or FCJ Refugee Centre YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3vfiFkVStc)

This visit had variety of goals including better understand the complex situation of Syrian asylum-seekers and refugees in Bulgaria. This understanding was facilitated by interviews with key stakeholders including state agencies, NGOs, Syrian refugees, as well as visits to immigration reception centers in Bulgaria. A short video was also produced to reproduce parts of the conducted interviews and comments gathered during the visit.

BREAKING THE SILENCE: A CONVERSATION AROUND FEMINICIDE
Breaking the Silence is a documentary that shows the violence that women are continuously facing, specifically in El Salvador. FCJ Refugee Centre was happy to release this documentary as a resource to create awareness about this situation around the world. The video will be available soon.
Message from the producer of the documentary: Gerson Peña
I think that the main message to take away from the film is, that violence against women is continuing to happen and that there needs to be more done about it.
This is not an issue of El Salvador only, this is a global issue. Many people will look at the film and call it a feminist film or ask me why I made a feminist film. I think that this goes beyond that. This isn’t about feminism, this is about human rights, the basic human right to live. We are all humans and therefore we should all be one
