Migrants Matter has created an illustrated booklet entitled “Illustrate Our Rights.” The booklet will explain the United Nations Migrant Workers Convention in simple, easy to understand language, using illustrations. Illustrate Our Rights will be released at a launching event in Brussels, Belgium held on International Migrants Day, December 18, 2015. As this day is also the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations Migrant Workers Convention, it is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the Convention and promote its ratification among EU Member States.

On 18 December 2015 representatives of international NGOs, politicians, young professionals and the media will gather to mark the 25th Anniversary of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (ICMW). Migrants Matter will celebrate this special moment by launching the Illustrate Our Rights comic which explains the ICMW using illustrations and simple and easy to understand language.

The Illustrate Our Rights event represents an opportunity for you to express support for the protection of migrants’ rights in line with the minimum standards of international human rights law as represented by the UN Migrant Workers Convention.

We would be delighted to see you at the Illustrate Our Rights launching event and to provide you with an opportunity to publicly support ratification of the ICMW by EU Member States. We hope that you will join us for this important event in Brussels on 18 December 2015.
