How to build a more compassionate world for refugees

5 August @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Presenter: Kon Karapanagiotidis, OAM, CEO and Founder of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

“We cannot have a truly inclusive, fair and welcoming Australia for all, one that embraces our multiculturalism and values our diversity, if we continue to imprison refugees, keep families apart and leave thousands in destitution and despair instead of enabling our newest Australians to settle, contribute and thrive. When we stand with refugees and centre their voices, building coalitions of community, compassion and hope together, anything is possible. The answer is not building tougher borders or higher walls but a longer table where everyone has a seat at the table.” Kon Karapanagiotidis

Don’t miss this opportunity to listen to Kon discuss his ideas for welcoming refugees in Australia. His biography is available for download.
