To all refugee rights supporters and your organisations,
World Refugee Day/Refugee Week is coming up in June. It has become the main refugee rights focus of the year. It has become a broad based collaborative event involving many organisations and individuals. The message below tells you the various ways you can help to create another memorable event that helps to get the message across to the public and our political leaders. Hope to see you at next Wednesday’s meeting (which Wayne Sanderson of Amnesty has kindly agreed to chair); or if you can’t make it, please help in some other way.
Let’s make it something special,
