More Details:

The Uniting Social Justice Forum has teamed up with the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) to help change the conversation around refugees and people seeking asylum through a series of Community Action Workshops. These interactive workshops are an initiative of the ASRC’s #RightTrack Campaign and are designed to equip people with the skills to have positive, values-based conversations about refugees and people seeking asylum with those around them. It is also about teaching people how to avoid reinforcing opposing views and frames of language that largely contribute to the negative perceptions around refugees.

In the 4hr session at Jesmond Park Uniting Church, participants will learn about tools, strategies and actions that can help achieve sustainable change in community attitudes to people seeking asylum.

Time: 9am (for 9:30am start) – 1pm
