Was one of your ancestors an immigrant?  Did they come here to build a better life? Were they leaving poverty, danger, lack of opportunity for their children?  We now have a new wave of immigrants....those who come here, not just by choice, but because they have no life at home.

What are the key facts that are so often missing in the public debate about asylum seekers?  Why are people fleeing their home countries and what challenges do they face whilst seeking asylum?  Do you have negative perceptions and are they accurate or influenced by myths?  Australia has social justice and humanitarian obligations towards people seeking asylum.....do you know what they are?.  

Rachel White from the Asylum Seekers Centre will tell us about the valuable contribution that people seeking asylum bring to the Australian community and will explain the Centre's role and how community groups and individuals can support people seeking asylum whilst they rebuild their lives.
