#HERETOSTAY: A celebration and fundraiser
Kelechi, a queer, disabled, wheelchiar reliant woman from Nigeria was told repeatedly by the home office that she had to go. She had her first application, and subsequent appeal rejected. But Kelechi, and activists alongside her, fought on and we WON.

We need to celebrate our wins as each win we have is a win against xenophobia, racism, homophobia and oppression.
** LINE UP SO FAR **
Speech and thank you from KELECHI CHIOBA & #SaveKelechi Campaign
Performance by CHERELLE SKEETE
Come and share in this small victory, and nourish yourself for the continued struggle against detention, deportation and inhumane immigration controls.
There will be food, music, dancing and lots of opportunity to meet and learn from each other.
This victory, shows us the importance of sustained solidarity, not just for Kelechi, but for all those who have to encounter the dehumanising systems of immigration control. It gives us hope that if we fight, we can make a difference.
We’re fundraising to support Kelechi’s accommodation and
some of the proceeds will also go to support the work of groups who are led by and centre the experiences of migrants, refugees and those seeking asylum.**
