Celebrating Refugee Week 2023
June 13th, 2023
With the 2023 theme of Finding Freedom, we are invited to consider what freedom means and how we can be part of achieving it for everyone. Consequently when people of all backgrounds, abilities and locations feel a sense of identity, purpose and belonging, they are motivated to volunteer. The Refugee Week theme has a number of important functions:
Freedom includes living without fear of war. Additionally, it ensures that our basic rights are respected. Equality without persecution is crucial too. Every day, countless people seek safety and freedom. They embark on risky journeys across the globe. Some choose Australia, others different nations. New opportunities emerge for them.
In 2023, we strongly encourage organisations and individuals to utilise the resources and tools available on our website. Let’s demonstrate compassion. Let’s celebrate the resilience that unites our diverse community. After all, freedom shouldn’t be a mere request; it should be a way of life.
