Una Kelly and Aurélie Radisson — The right to asylum, the situation of asylum seekers in France, and the concrete actions of Secours Catholique
Una Kelly is a 32 year old veterinarian. She moved from Scotland to France as a child, and still considers herself a migrant. Aware of her privilege as a European, she has chosen to commit herself for those that come from further away and that aren’t welcomed in France in the same way as she was. She has been a volunteer for the last 5 months at Secours Catholique. One afternoon per week, she receives asylum seekers and helps them access their rights.
Aurélie Radisson is in charge of the reception unit in the Cèdre, a Secours Catholique agency for asylum seekers and foreigners in fragile situations. As part of her mission, she supports the field actors of Secours Catholique – Caritas France in their actions for migrants.
Una and Aurélie will speak about the right to asylum, the situation of asylum seekers in France and the concrete actions of Secours Catholique so that their dignity and their rights are respected. They will show you how their commitment, as a worker and volunteer, is a political and spiritual one.
