[Edited extract from public address]

Are you interested in the issues that face people seeking asylum and looking for an opportunity to make a real difference? 

The Side Door Social Justice Centre invites you to join them at a workshop facilitated by the Community Engagement team from the ASRC (Asylum Seeker Resource Centre) on values-based conversations that shift community attitudes on the rights of people seeking asylum.

The #RightTrack campaign works to share the findings of the Words that Work messaging research project that studied the impact of language on 1500 people all around Australia. The findings give us messages and strategies to build community support for people's right to seek asylum. The ASRC has since been working on a conversation framework which helps people to have open, values-based conversations that don’t have to involve fact-sharing or be an information overload. The conversation model is based on sharing our values and personal responses to the issues faced by people seeking asylum.

The content of this workshop is designed to complement any existing advocacy you may already be involved in, and on the day you'll meet and work with others taking action in your area. So, whether you're already deeply involved or just starting out, confirm your spot now!
