Melbourne: Meet Fadak: Melbourne Launch
19 June 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Refugees On Air & Road to Refuge at the ‘Meet Fadak’ launch: a live podcast recording at Mesma Studios!
Every Australian needs to meet Fadak. Fadak is a 25 year old Australian law graduate fighting for justice. Fifteen years ago she was a refugee, fleeing the invasion of Iraq.
Now, Fadak is on a mission to tell her story as Australia has not yet heard it: in her own words: ‘I’ve been an Australian longer than I’ve been a refugee. I’m tired of having others tell my story. I want to reclaim my voice’.’
Together with Road to Refuge, and dozens of other community organisations, Fadak is seeking to embark on a new type of storytelling campaign to challenge the stories about her and other people like her.
She wants every Australian to meet her and to put a human face ahead of the politics that has divided Australian communities for far too long.
