Refugee Week is a unique time of year to celebrate the contributions that refugees bring to Australia as well as showing support to refugees and their families. It is a time to reflect on what we would do if we were in a similar position as some of those who seek asylum in Australia. It is a great opportunity to hold an event and to build awareness of the needs of refugees.
If you are an Amnesty group and want to take action for Refugee Week let us know! In 2011, Refugee Week will be celebrated from from Sunday 19 June to Saturday 25 June and coincides with World Refufee Day which is Monday 20 June.
