Australia-wide: Walk Together

31 October 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Walk Together

walk-together-2013

We believe Australians are a welcoming, generous and compassionate people. On Saturday, October 31 you’re invited to #SayWelcome in cities and towns across the nation.

We believe an Australia where prejudice is unpopular and cruelty hurts at the polls, is possible. An Australia that recognises the equality and dignity of all people – no matter who you are, where you’re from or how you arrived here – and extends our values of fairness and friendship to everyone. We dream of a nation that celebrates diversity, made up of communities where people of our First Nations, asylum seekers, refugees, international students, skilled migrants and every other human being can experience the joy and security of belonging.

Walk Together takes place on Saturday 31 October 2015.

In cities and regional centres all over Australia, you’re invited to join this celebration of diversity and present a picture to our leaders and media of the Australia that is possible; a nation known for our compassion, generosity and welcome. Faced with increasing instances of fear and prejudice, it’s more important than ever for values of compassion and welcome to reign. For the sake of our futures, it’s time to Walk Together. #SayWelcome
