Join Kalsi Solicitors in celebrating international women’s day. This year we celebrate the progress that women internationally have made following the aims and objectives set out in the 1995 UN declaration.
We recognise that further work needs to be input in all aspects of civic and political society. This event is aimed at bringing together an inter-agency approach to supporting women and refugees across the UK.
We would be delighted for you to join us.
