We are a community that stands up for freedom, fairness, and dignity for all.
Last year, communities across the country stood with people seeking asylum to demand our leaders #LetThemStay, and the Government had no choice but to back down on its threats to deport people seeking protection in Australia back to harm on Nauru and Manus Island.
The Government has now begun its second attempt to force people living in our community back to Nauru and Manus Island, without any plan for a safe future for the people who have already been imprisoned there for more than four years.
Join us in standing with people seeking asylum in our community and in our Government's care offshore. Sign up and join the movement by calling your local MP to demand the Government #LetThemStay!
This half day 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.
At the workshop you will:
- Learn to apply a new language and discourse that evokes a powerful shift in community attitudes toward refugees and people seeking asylum
- Learn new messaging strategies to maximise the results of your advocacy efforts
- Workshop your ideas and receive practical feedback
- Expand your networks and meet like minded people
- Gain access to new tools and resources
Here is what one of our participants thought about the recent Sydney workshop: "The workshop was very effective especially because it gave us the chance to practice our new found skills with role playing. I realise it takes practice but I'm convinced that values-based language is effective in changing people's opinions."
We look forward to seeing you there!
