Off the back of our first major summer fundraiser "Gimme Shelter!", the Road to Refuge team are thrilled to announce Paths to Change - A Conference for the Refugee Sector, organised in partnership with the Amnesty Refugee Network - VIC.
Paths to Change will be focused on providing individuals with skills to become powerful advocates for people seeking asylum. 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.
By registering, every participant will attend four 50-minute workshops, run by presenters already engaged within the sector, throughout the day. 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.
Sessions which will run on the day include the following topics:
- Words that Work to Change the Conversation
- “Get Outta My Way” - Supporting People to be Their Own Agents of Change
- A Better Home for All - A Plan of Action for Improving Asylum Seeking in this Country
- How to Talk to Your MP About Issues that Concern You
- and many more.
