Road to Refuge is a volunteer run, not-for-profit organisation aimed at changing the dialogue Australia is having about refugees and people seeking asylum.
Our Paths to Change conference will be focused on providing individuals with skills to become powerful allies to people seeking asylum and better advocates for the cause. By attending the conference, you will develop a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding issues within the refugee and asylum sector, as well as practical skills for implementing change.
Every participant will attend four 50-minute workshops, run by presenters already engaged within the sector, throughout the day. Please find details attached. All attendees will also have the chance to attend a Q&A panel, and a Sector Expo featuring stalls from various organisations within the sector. Food and refreshments will be provided.
Presenters for Paths to Change will include representatives from:
Refugee Council of Australia
Refugee Communities Advocacy Network
Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
Swinburne University of Technology
Amnesty Refugee Network Victoria
