BOOK NOW: Brexit support group the3million to join us at event for EU national staff

Sep 03, 2018

Our EU staff network group is partnering with lobbying and support group ‘the3Million’ with a special event aimed at informing EU citizens about the work of the3Million and the Settled Status process on Thursday 13 September in Lower Maxwell Hall (3.20-6pm).

the3million is a not for profit organisation formed after the Brexit referendum to protect the lives of EU citizens who made the UK their home. They’ll be sharing the good work they’ve been doing as well as providing expertise in the shape of a European Commission approved Immigration lawyer who will outline the Settled Status Application process and will respond to specific queries regarding Brexit and immigration.

The University is committed to supporting colleagues who are EU nationals and, through the staff network, are keen to create a space for them to come together, share concerns and get expert advice.

3.20pm: Doors open

3.45pm: Introduction by Cristina Tegolo, Co-ordinator of The3million Manchester

3.50pm: Presentation by Elena Remigi, co-writer of the book “In Limbo - Brexit testimonies from EU citizens in the UK”,
