Geelong: G21 Refugee Week Campaign
14 June 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
14-20 June: G21 REFUGEE AND ASYLUM SEEKER SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN #G21RefugeeWeek
For the second consecutive year, the G21 Refugee and Asylum Seeker Group will be coordinating a social media campaign in support of Refugee Week (14-20 June).
You can help spread the word and raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers in our region.
This year, the Refugee Council of Australia is encouraging organisations to celebrate a unified Refugee Week based around the theme ‘With courage let us all combine’.
The #G21RefugeeWeek campaign is your opportunity to celebrate and promote the wonderful work and achievements you’re involved in.
When creating a new tweet, or Facebook post, please include #G21RefugeeWeek so that others are able to show their support by retweeting and sharing your posts.
The G21 region as a whole has been incredibly supportive towards refugees and asylum seekers, with four of our five local councils signed up as Refugee Welcome Zones. There are also a huge number of organisations, advocacy groups, and health and community services who are passionate about making a different to the lives of these brave and courageous people who have fled their countries in fear of persecution, torture or loss of life.
G21 will be leading the campaign on Monday 15th June, with a focus of promoting a number of local resources and reports that have been created to increase awareness and assist those committed and willing to support refugees and asylum seekers.
Organised by Kate Smith, Project Support Worker (Tuesday,Thursday & Friday),
