The strength within: How community-led organisations in Australia are key to refugee protection and integration
The extent to which refugee community-led organisations are supporting people who are newly arrived in Australia, seeking asylum, or living as refugees elsewhere in the world is poorly understood and rarely acknowledged. The breadth and depth of assistance provided by mostly volunteer-run community-led organisations - as well as the unique challenges they face - can be invisible to those outside of refugee communities.
Join us for our second Refugee Alternatives Webinar to hear speakers from some of the many hundreds of refugee community-led organisations that exist across Australia talk about the ways that they respond to the ever-changing challenges, hopes and aspirations of their communities, and how we can better acknowledge, support and amplify the strengths within community networks.
This webinar will be held on 9 June, before Refugee Week which celebrates positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society.
