Charlotte Leslie, MP for Bristol North West, and Thangam Debbonaire, MP for Bristol West, speaking at the launch of the #Somali cultural exhibition, ‘Somalis in Bristol: Where are we from and who are we now?’ at the M Shed.
#CharlotteLeslie MP: “Ignorance makes people fearful. When actually – when people get to know each other – the ways in which we’re different is magnificent and enriching. And actually there are so many ways we are exactly the same.”
Thangam Debbonaire MP: “Part of what makes Bristol great is our cultural life, another part of what makes Bristol such a wonderful place to live is our diversity.”
