Bristol MPs speaking at the launch of the Somali cultural exhibition

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.”
