Change the Conversation workshop & MP Engagement workshop
Saturday, August 29th.
Uniting Church hall in Barkly Street.
Change the Conversation workshop.
To date, the asylum seeker debate in Australia has been dominated by misinformation, confusion and unfounded fears. Most Australians are unaware of even the most basic facts underpinning this issue – like the fact that it is legal to seek asylum by boat under Australian and international law.
It’s time to change this conversation, and start spreading the truth about this issue. We’ve created Conversation Booklets to help arm you with the facts to speak authoritatively on about asylum seekers – and to respond to common counter-arguments.
Asylum seekers locked up in detention have little power to tell their stories or ask for fair treatment, so it is up to people like you to talk to your family and friends
