Vigils You Can Attend

Vigils are a way peaceful and impactful way to make a statement about Australia’s refugees and asylum seekers.  Below you’ll find a list of Vigils on around Australia. If you can’t find one in a town near you, why not organise one yourself? Some guidelines on organising your own vigil can be found here.
