TUESDAY / House meeting: Letter from Sjælsmark families to the prime minister

The house meeting is the democratic parliament and information forum of Trampoline House, where users, interns, volunteers, and staff update each other on news and discuss urgent issues related to the house and life as a refugee/asylum seeker. During this week’s meeting, we will first announce some new additions to the house program. Afterwards, a group of families living in deportation center Sjælsmark have asked for help to write a letter to the Danish prime minister in response to a letter from Sjælsmark employee wrongly stating that the families prefer to stay in Sjælsmark as opposed to moving to a new, more children friendly center. When: Tuesday, Aug. 6, 4–5 pm. Where: Trampoline House’s café.
