On 1 June 2018, nearly 30 people from diverse backgrounds came together in Logan, Qld, to learn how to have persuasive conversations and take action for safety, fairness and freedom for people seeking asylum.
This workshop, which is co-hosted by the Islamic Women's Association of Australia, AMARAH and Australian Association of Social Workers - Qld Branch, will introduce the tools and strategies to have value-based conversations with family, friends and people of influence about the issues impacting 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 workshop will conclude at 1pm and will be followed by lunch until 1.30pm.
Please arrive by 10.15am for a 10.30am start.
