"Fairness and safety". Over the weekend, community leaders and local groups in Ipswich, QLD came together to call for our Government to #changethepolicy for people seeking asylum. You can join a community workshop here: http://righttrack.org.au/
The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Amnesty, GetUp!, Mums 4 Refugees and Love Makes A Way warmly invite all community members to an Ipswich Community Action Workshop on Saturday 28 July.
The workshop will introduce the tools and strategies to have value-based conversations with family, friends and people of influence about the issues that impact people seeking asylum.
It will also be a chance to meet like-minded people who may want to take a collective approach in your area.
The content of the workshop draws on the findings of our ground-breaking ‘Words That Work’ messaging research which found more effective ways of communicating about the rights of people seeking asylum.
By working together, we can transform the way our community thinks about people seeking asylum. It's time to get the conversation towards a shared future on the #RightTrack. We look forward to seeing you there!
The 2.5 hour workshop will be followed by refreshments until 4pm.
Please arrive by 12.45pm for a 1pm start.
