  • Multifaith workshop - Justice for People Seeking Asylum (North side) 29/10/17

    How do various faith traditions call their communities to respond to people seeking asylum in Australia today?

    How can communities of faith respond with compassion and justice, guided by religious teachings that call us to treat others as we would want to be treated, recognising the sacredness and dignity of all human life?

    Love Makes a Way (LMAW) and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) are coming together to present a workshop on how to change the conversation about people seeking asylum and to open hearts and minds within our communities.   

    This half day workshop will introduce language and strategies for how to have value-based conversations informed and motivated by your faith with family, friends, fellow community members and people of influence about the issues that impact people seeking asylum. It will also be a chance to meet likeminded people who may want to take a collective approach in your community.

    The content of the workshop draws on the findings of the ASRC’s ground-breaking ‘Words That Work’ messaging research which found more effective ways of communicating about the rights of people seeking asylum.  Workshops are interactive, with practical and inspiring ways for all of us to be part of making a real difference.

    By working together we can transform the way our community thinks about people seeking asylum. For people of faith, this is an opportunity to come together with others who want to speak out about the injustices we see and advocate for compassion, justice, mercy and peace. 

     

    NB: Venue is accessible and afternoon tea will be provided (Halal, gluten and dairy free options available)

  • Campaign to Win: YAP November Meet-Up

    This dinner will be an opportunity for young people (30 and under) to learn how to design and contribute to a campaign that effectively changes the unfair policies affecting people seeking asylum. We will hear tips and insights from our insightful panel about strategic campaigning and movement building, but also about how our individual skills and experiences can give us a particular power to make use of in the movement.

    We will also hear from Yappers who are taking action in their local community. Hopefully this will give you an opportunity to join an existing campaign, or get some ideas for starting your own community action. 

    If you’d like to join us – RSVP through the link below! 

    Please be there at 5.15 pm for a 5.30 start. 

    If you can’t make it but would like to know about future events, sign up to the Youth Action Project to receive updates about upcoming opportunities available for young people!

  • Conversation Project Handover, Coburg, November 11

    In this practical half-day Conversation Project Handover we will share the tools, strategies and logistics for coordinating values-based conversation projects that shift community attitudes on the rights of people seeking asylum.

    Bringing together people from the electorates of Wills, Batman and beyond, this will be a great opportunity to reconnect with, and perhaps meet for the first time, others in the area who wish to drive change and collaborate strategically.

    Running a conversation project is a strategic way of targeting people you want to support the rights of people seeking asylum, and in the lead up to the next federal election provides a strong evidence base to prove to your community and MP that people want our to Government respond fairly and humanely.
