Ipswich Community Action Workshop

The Ipswich Action Group is one of forty local GetUp groups around the nation who regularly meet to work on important issues, like fighting Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton's cruel offshore detention regime. 

For too long, hard-right politicians  have targeted people seeking asylum and used them as scapegoats for their own failed social and economic policies. They’ve done this by framing the public debate on their terms — leading the media and many of us to use their loaded and misleading language to justify their cruelty.   

So we’re partnering with Asylum Seeker Resource Centre to hold a Community Action Workshop on Saturday 28 July. We’ll learn from groundbreaking research by communications expert Anat Shenker-Osorio on how to compassionately and effectively talk about people seeking asylum. Together we can change the language of the debate and win the fight for justice on our terms.

What: Ipswich Community Action Workshop
When: 1-3:30pm, Saturday 28 July. Please arrive by 12:45 for a 1pm start. The workshop will be followed by some refreshments until 4pm. 
Where: Glebe Road Uniting Church, 98/104 Glebe Rd, Booval
No experience required, friends and family all welcome

I’ll also be speaking about how you can get involved in the growing grassroots campaign underway in the electorate of Dickson to unseat Peter Dutton and to elect an MP that’s representative of our vision for a fair and just Australia.

Look forward to seeing you there!
