Refugee Week 2016

Refugee Week 2016

Searching for Freedom is a reminder of what people are doing when they flee situations of persecution and grave danger.

Because it's important to understand what's happening in the world and in Australia for those searching for freedom, this resource includes information about Australia's history of accepting refugees, what it means to seek asylum, and how many refugees there are in the world and where they are living. 

It describes an alternative to 'stopping the boats', and includes a section on the situation of the roughly 30,000 people who are living in the community waiting to have their claims for protection processed. 

This resource also includes a number of ideas for what you can do to help bring about positive change.
