Right to Refuge Conversation Workshop Melbourne

June 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Everyone deserves to live in safety. When we feel vulnerable or in danger we like to know we have a safe place to turn to. People seeking asylum have the right to seek refuge when their safety and dignity is threatened.

While there is growing awareness of the global refugee crisis and the need for an appropriate response from the world community, successive governments including our own have chosen to deliberately deny people’s basic right to freedom and safety.

We believe that if we put people at the centre of the narrative and have conversations on a mass scale with persuadable groups in the community, then we will see a shift in the attitudes of everyday Australians and politicians will face increasing pressure to reconsider the politicisation of the refugee debate so that, the government and opposition change their policies to include Oxfam’s policy objectives.

Attend one of Oxfam’s Right to Refuge Conversation workshops in your local area in June & July and get started on your plan to reach persuadable people in your community. Registrations are essential and will book out. RSVP now to secure your spot.

Lunch included.
