On behalf of the Wellington Community Justice Project, we are pleased to invite you to participate in our refugee resettlement policy development evening – ‘Hear Our Voices, We Entreat.’
Aotearoa’s current support for asylum seekers and convention refugees is far from satisfactory. However, change is on the horizon. This event is a unique opportunity to hear a diverse range of perspectives on current refugee policy. We will learn about the impacts of our policies on asylum seekers first hand, examine the development of New Zealand’s attitude towards asylum seekers through history, explore a te āo māori approach to refugee policy and re-imagine our approach to the asylum claims process with these perspectives at its heart.
Look forward to musical entertainment, delicious refreshments from Pomegranate Kitchen and a video presentation created by the Asylum Seekers Equality Project.
