In the second instalment of our podcast, we were joined by the director of Cork Migrant Centre, Dr Naomi Mashetti, and youth leaders and mentors, Fionnuala O’ Connell and Sophia Egan, who spoke to our members about the work they do empowering migrants in Cork City, the challenges facing young people living in Direct Provision and making a real change when it comes to racism in our society.
During this difficult time, Cork City CNN has decided to start a podcast to continue sharing our work and the work of those we work with. As Cork City Comhairle na nÓg research our chosen topic of segregation we will invite a number of guest speakers to give us perspective and information.
We were delighted to hold a conference call with Dr. Aoife Daly.
